The Face Recognition Vendor Test (FRVT) 2006 and Iris Challenge Evaluation (ICE) 2006 are independent U.S. Government evaluations of face and iris recognition performance. These evaluations were conducted simultaneously at NIST using the same test infrastructure. Human performance verses algorithm performance was also evaluated, making this the first unified evaluation of face, iris and human recognition performance in the U.S. Government. Test results on large-scale experiments for both face and iris recognition are presented in this evaluation report. These results show two orders of magnitude improvement in performance on face recognition since the first face recognition evaluation program was established in 1993 and provide a performance baseline for iris recognition. Results on human performance verses machine performance and the first multi-modal comparison between face and iris recognition are also presented in this report.
