Biometrics, the technology of utilizing actual qualities to spot contributors, is taking part in an expanding position in our security-conscious society and around the globe. Biometric authentication, or bioauthentication, platforms are getting used to safe every little thing from enjoyment parks to financial institution bills to army installations. but advancements during this box haven't been matched via an similar development within the statistical tools for comparing those systems.

Compensating for this desire, this distinctive text/reference presents a uncomplicated statistical method for practitioners and testers of bioauthentication units, delivering a suite of rigorous statistical tools for comparing biometric authentication structures. This framework of equipment should be prolonged and generalized for quite a lot of functions and tests.

This is the 1st unmarried source on statistical equipment for estimation and comparability of the functionality of biometric authentication structures. The ebook makes a speciality of six universal functionality metrics: for every metric, statistical tools are derived for a unmarried approach that comes with self assurance periods, speculation exams, pattern measurement calculations, strength calculations and prediction durations. those equipment also are prolonged to permit for the statistical comparability and review of a number of platforms for either self sufficient and coupled data.

Topics and features:

* offers a statistical technique for the most typical biometric functionality metrics: failure to sign up (FTE), failure to procure (FTA), fake non-match cost (FNMR), fake fit expense (FMR), and receiver working attribute (ROC) curves
* provides tools for the comparability of 2 or extra biometric functionality metrics
* Introduces a brand new bootstrap method for FMR and ROC curve estimation
* offers greater than a hundred and twenty examples, utilizing publicly to be had biometric info the place possible
* Discusses the addition of prediction periods to the bioauthentication statistical toolset
* Describes sample-size and gear calculations for FTE, FTA, FNMR and FMR

Researchers, managers and judgements makers wanting to check biometric platforms throughout various metrics will locate inside of this reference a useful set of statistical instruments. Written for an upper-level undergraduate or master’s point viewers with a quantitative historical past, readers also are anticipated to appreciate the subjects in a standard undergraduate information course.

Dr. Michael E. Schuckers is affiliate Professor of information at St. Lawrence collage, Canton, big apple, and a member of the heart for identity expertise Research.
