This article reports about the project BioFace, within the scope of which face recognition systems available to the market were tested. The main focus of the project was on the one hand side benchmarking of biometric face recognition algorithms operating on large scale datasets with approx. 50,000 test samples. On the other hand a system test was conducted to determine face recognition system capabilities in the detection of seeked persons from the videostream of a monitoring camera. This article describes database used in the investigation as well as concept and realization of the algorithm and system tests. First results of the tests are presented. The project is carried out in close collaboration between Federal Bureau of Criminal Investigation (Bundeskriminalamt, BKA), the Federal Office for Information Security (Bundesamt für Sicherheit in der Informationstechnik, BSI) and the Fraunhofer-IGD.
