Recent research in biometrics has suggested the existence of the “Biometric Menagerie” in which weak users contribute disproportionately to the error rate (FAR and FRR) of a biometric system. The aim of this work is to utilize this observation to design a multibiometric system where information is consolidated on a user-specific basis. To facilitate this, the users in a database are characterized into multiple categories and only users belonging to weak categories are required to provide… CONTINUE READING
