Abstract

Biometrics is a technology designed to automatically recognize a person together with his/her natural and distinct characteristics. Recently it is in the limelight as an effective authentication method of information. With the great interests in biometrics, the need for reliable evaluation of these technologies increases and the research on objective and quantitative performance estimation methodology is actively investigated. In this paper, we give a comprehensive overview of biometric technology and performance evaluation with more than 100 publications, specially focused on fingerprints. After the thorough review, we propose a promising evaluation method based on affecting factors.
