A natural question that arises in biometric recognition is which biometric system is “best” suited for a particular application. Of course, the answer to this question depends not only on technical merits and limitations of the biometric system (e.g., matching accuracy and throughput), but also on other socio-economic factors like user acceptability and system cost. However, given that all other factors are equal, one would obviously prefer a biometric system that has the least probability of failure.
