The FERET Verification Testing Protocol for Face Recognition Algorithms
S A. Rizvi, P J. Phillips, H Moon
Two critical performance characterizations of biometric algorithms, including face recogntion, are identification and verification. In face recognition, FERET is the de facto standard evaluation methodology. Identification performance of face recognition algorithms on the FERET tests has been previously reported. In this paper, we report on verification performance obtained from the Sep96 FERET test. Results are presented for images taken on the same day, for images taken on different days, for images taken at least one year apart, and for images taken under different lighting conditions.
