Information Technology – Biometric Performance Testing and Reporting – Part 5: Framework for Testing and Evaluation of Biometric System(s) for Access Control
|Publication Date:||5 December 2011|
This American National Standard defines a general-purpose test methodology for scenario evaluation of biometric access control system(s) and subsystem(s). The standard specifies test planning, execution, and reporting requirements. The standard establishes grade levels as functions of observed false reject rates at each of three separate false accept rates, failure to enroll rate and transaction time.
The general purpose nature of the standard applies to most common access control application requirements, such that results are applicable to many but not all access control applications. The framework is not suitable for highly specialized access control applications (e.g., those requiring very high levels of protection or with specialized user populations such as the elderly). Highly specialized access control application warrant test processes beyond the scope of this standard.
The following types of tests are not in the scope of this standard:
• Active impostor testing;
• Human factors, including user acceptance;
• Identification performance metrics;
• Reliability, availability and maintainability;
• Security, including vulnerability.
