D12 – Voice Biometric Engines Phase 1

This document aims at supporting the software delivery of the voice biometrics platform based on existing products from the technology providers which include improvements in terms of robustness from early work in WP4. Although this deliverable (D12) is effectively a software release into a cloud environment, the OCTAVE Consortium believes that an auxiliary report summarises [...]

D11 – Single Mode Voice Biometric Engines (Software Modules and Supporting Documentation)

This document accompanies the program code of the OCTAVE deliverable D11 ‘Single mode biometric engines’. Here, an engine is understood as a collection of pre-configured wrappers combined with existing open-source speaker verification systems. The main intention of D11 is to provide a simple baseline recognizer to enable studying relevant data engineering questions in later stages [...]

D10 – Privacy by Design Guidelines

As more and more information and communication systems are being developed with capabilities that enable the processing and collection of individual personal data, there is an increased concern regarding a greater exposure to potential threats. The more personal data a system contains, the more interesting it becomes to potential fraudsters. Consequently, policy makers, research organisations [...]

D09 – Robustness to Spoofing with Existing Countermeasures

This deliverable outlines existing countermeasures for the protection of automatic speaker verification technology from spoofing. This can take the form of impersonation, replayed speech, synthetic speech and converted voice. The latter three forms of attack have all been shown to present a significant threat to verification performance and are thus the focus within OCTAVE. In [...]

D08 – Report on Trial Design

This report provides a detailed analysis of the trial and testing scenarios of the Trusted Biometric Authentication Service (TBAS) targeted by the OCTAVE Project. The report assesses the requirements expressed by the two Partners involved as Application Owners in the in-field trial scenario, defines the trial needs, and outlines procedures, methods, evaluation models to be [...]

D07 – Report on Performance Definition

Since the technological target of the OCTAVE system is to deliver effective methods for introducing robustness into speaker verification to environmental variability and against spoofing attacks of any type, this deliverable identifies both the core determinants which may affect the performance and the relevant sets of metrics. OCTAVE is also expecting to realize a secure [...]

D06 – Survey of the Legal Framework for the Secure Collection and Manipulation of Personal Data

The goal of OCTAVE is the delivery of a safe remote access control platform called TBAS (Trusted Biometric Authentication Service) that will rely on the use of personal data including biometric ones. The platform is intended for data-sensitive and mission-critical applications; in the context of the project, it will be demonstrated in two real scenarios: [...]

D05 – Process and Operative Procedure Assessment Document

The main purpose of this document is to provide an early, brief description of the Trial scenario of OCTAVE TBAS application for the two project end users SEA and Findomestic. Processes, technologies and requirements are presented, which must be met by the application, in order to both realize a successful Trial and grant the subsequent [...]

D04 – Suitability of Existing Voice Biometric Engines (internal version for use within the Consortium)

This deliverable details the key considerations and requirements for the effective realisation and deployment of voice biometrics in the application scenarios within OCTAVE. As a main facet of the report, the effects of extrinsic and intrinsic nuisance factors (other than spoofing) on the speaker recognition performance are reviewed. These include variations in the acoustic environments [...]

D03 – Baseline Voice Biometric Systems and their Vulnerability to Spoofing (internal version for use within the Consortium)

This report provides an overview of speaker verification and its potential vulnerabilities, particularly with reference to the objectives within OCTAVE. The scope of the study covers the two individual modes of text-dependent and text-independent, which are considered in the formation of a complete voice biometric system for operating under unsupervised conditions. The report details the [...]
