Provisional chapter Evaluation of Biometric Systems

  title={Provisional chapter Evaluation of Biometric Systems},
  author={Mohamad El-Abed and Christophe Charrier and Christophe Rosenberger},
Biometrics is considered as a promising solution among traditional methods based on “what we own” (such as a key) or “what we know” (such as a password). It is based on “what we are” and “how we behave”. Few people know that biometrics have been used for ages for identification or signature purposes. In 1928 for example, fingerprints were used for women clerical employees of Los Angeles police department as depicted in Figure 1. Fingerprints were also already used as a signature for commercial…

A Hand Gesture-Based Method for Biometric Authentication

Using the motions of fingertips and finger joints as biometric data, the method improves the performance of authentication and supports three-dimensional gestures that allow its user to move the user’s hand without touching an input device.

In recent years, automatic personal identification is becoming an important requirement in variety applications such as access control, surveillance systems and physical buildings. Biometrics, which

Inertia-Based Ear Biometrics: A Novel Approach

A novel approach to ear biometrics is elaborates on, proposing moment of inertia-based biometric for the ears in any random orientation that is suggestive of robustness and excellent authentication performance.



Public Perceptions of Biometric Devices: The Effect of Misinformation on Acceptance and Use

Given the advantages of using a biometric system for monitoring employees and increasing security of information as well as access to buildings, it is not surprising that the industry is expected to grow from $93.4 million in 2001 to $4 billion in 2007.

Understanding user perspectives on biometric technology

Biometric technologies are not without problems and come with their fair share of concerns, but many of the technology’s obstacles are based on attitudes and behaviors, related to user acceptance, trust, habits, etc., ultimately presenting a greater challenge for implementation.

Biometrics: a grand challenge

Solving these core problems will not only catapult biometrics into mainstream applications but will also stimulate adoption of other pattern recognition applications for providing effective automation of sensitive tasks without jeopardizing the authors' individual freedoms.

Guide to Biometric Reference Systems and Performance Evaluation

This useful guide introduces a new performance evaluation framework designed to provide complete coverage of performance evaluation of major biometric systems, and with its comprehensive coverage, will prove an indispensable resource and frequently used tool.

Biometrical Fingerprint Recognition: Don't Get Your Fingers Burned

This article shows how all currently available fingerprint scanners can be fooled by dummies that are created with very limited means and skills, specifically verification based on fingerprints.

GREYC keystroke: A benchmark for keystroke dynamics biometric systems

A benchmark testing suite composed of a database and software that are available for the scientific community for the evaluation of keystroke dynamics based systems are proposed.

Benchmarking Quality-Dependent and Cost-Sensitive Score-Level Multimodal Biometric Fusion Algorithms

This paper reports a benchmarking study carried out within the framework of the BioSecure DS2 (Access Control) evaluation campaign organized by the University of Surrey, involving face, fingerprint, and iris biometrics for person authentication, targeting the application of physical access control in a medium-size establishment with some 500 persons.

A study of users' acceptance and satisfaction of biometric systems

A modality-independent evaluation methodology to study users' acceptance and satisfaction of biometric systems based on the use of a questionnaire and some data mining tools for the analysis demonstrated that users' satisfaction analysis should be more taken into account when developingBiometric systems.

Biometric Template Security

This work presents a high-level categorization of the various vulnerabilities of a biometric system and discusses countermeasures that have been proposed to address these vulnerabilities.

An Analysis of Minutiae Matching Strength

The potential security holes in a biometrics-based authentication scheme are outlined, the numerical strength of one method of fingerprint matching is quantified, then how to combat some of the remaining weaknesses are discussed.
