Download E-books Computational Methods in Biometric Authentication: Statistical Methods for Performance Evaluation (Information Science and Statistics) PDF

By Michael E. Schuckers

Biometrics, the technology of utilizing actual characteristics to spot members, is enjoying an expanding function in our security-conscious society and around the globe. Biometric authentication, or bioauthentication, structures are getting used to safe every little thing from enjoyment parks to financial institution money owed to army installations. but advancements during this box haven't been matched through an similar development within the statistical equipment for comparing those structures. Compensating for this want, this detailed text/reference presents a simple statistical method for practitioners and testers of bioauthentication units, delivering a collection of rigorous statistical tools for comparing biometric authentication structures. This framework of tools should be prolonged and generalized for quite a lot of functions and assessments. this can be the 1st unmarried source on statistical equipment for estimation and comparability of the functionality of biometric authentication structures. The e-book specializes in six universal functionality metrics: for every metric, statistical tools are derived for a unmarried method that comes with self assurance periods, speculation exams, pattern measurement calculations, energy calculations and prediction periods. those equipment also are prolonged to permit for the statistical comparability and assessment of a number of structures for either self sufficient and matched information. themes and contours: * presents a statistical method for the most typical biometric functionality metrics: failure to sign up (FTE), failure to obtain (FTA), fake non-match price (FNMR), fake fit cost (FMR), and receiver working attribute (ROC) curves * offers equipment for the comparability of 2 or extra biometric functionality metrics * Introduces a brand new bootstrap technique for FMR and ROC curve estimation * provides greater than one hundred twenty examples, utilizing publicly to be had biometric info the place attainable * Discusses the addition of prediction durations to the bioauthentication statistical toolset * Describes sample-size and gear calculations for FTE, FTA, FNMR and FMR Researchers, managers and judgements makers wanting to match biometric platforms throughout numerous 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 history, readers also are anticipated to realise the subjects in a standard undergraduate information path. Dr. Michael E. Schuckers is affiliate Professor of data at St. Lawrence collage, Canton, manhattan, and a member of the guts for id expertise study.
