Abstract

Earlier in this book (Chapter 5) we described the evaluation of biometric systems in terms of their error rates. But two important questions to consider when comparing these measures, principally the False Accept and False Reject Rates, is how accurately we know the error rates, and how much can they be trusted for making decisions.
