Successful Design of Biometric Tests in a Constrained Environment

Published

Abstract

The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), with participation of the biometrics community, conducts evaluations of biometrics-based verification and identification systems. Among the more challenging is testing of automated latent fingerprints matchers. Since participation in these tests is voluntary, and at the expense of the participant, NIST needs to exercise moderation in what, and how much, software to be tested is requested. As a result, it may not be possible to design tests which cover and resolve all possible outcomes. Conclusions may have to be inferred from partial or ambiguous results.
