iBeta Quality Assurance, a full-service biometrics, software quality, security, and performance testing lab, recently completed a successful project for a mid-sized bank to evaluate the False Accept Rate (FAR), False Reject Rate (FRR), and Spoof False Accept Rate (SFAR) of several biometric subsystem vendors’ products across multiple modalities.
“Spoofing and liveness testing is an increasingly important part of any thorough evaluation of biometric technology as black hats look for new ways around improved biometrics-based security,” said Dr. Kevin Wilson, Director of Biometrics at iBeta. “The latest draft of NIST SP 800-63-3, Digital Identity Guidelines mentions that presentation attack detection is being considered as a mandatory requirement.”
SFAR testing was informed by ISO/IEC 30107-1 standards in biometric presentation attack detection and are consistent with other applicable standards and practices from the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST).
Last September, iBeta released three new web-focused load/performance testing packages designed to reduce the high cost and complexity that is typically associated with load testing scenarios.
