Calibrated Confidence Scoring for Biometric Identification

  title={Calibrated Confidence Scoring for Biometric Identification},
  author={Dmitry O. Gorodnichy},
Existing biometric identification systems, such as those used in trusted traveler programs, attempt to identify an individual’s identity from an enrollment database of n people. The output is either the name of an enrolled person, or a rejection message indicating that no match was found. Traditionally, no measure of confidence is given to the output; an individual is either granted or denied access. In this paper, we propose an extension to existing biometric systems by applying a calibration… CONTINUE READING
