Abstract

Increasingly sophisticated biometric methods are being used for a variety of applications in which accurate authentication of people is necessary. Because all biometric methods require humans to interact with a device of some type, effective implementation requires consideration of human factors issues. One such issue is the training needed to use a particular device appropriately. In this paper, we review human factors issues in general that are associated with biometric devices and focus more specifically on the role of training.
