The OASIS XML Common Biometric Format (XCBF) Technical Committee defines a common set of secure XML encodings for the patron formats specified in CBEFF, the Common Biometric Exchange File Format (NISTIR 6529). These XML encodings are based on the ASN.1 schema defined in ANSI X9.84:2003 Biometrics Information Management and Security. They conform to the XML Encoding Rules (XER) for ASN.1 defined in ITU-T Recommendation X.693, and rely on the security and processing requirements specified in X9.96 XML Cryptographic Message Syntax (XCMS).
