IEEE Standard for Performance Evaluation of Biometric Information: Facial Recognition

Requirements and testing methods for a facial recognition testing system for end user devices are discussed in this standard. System and security requirements, algorithm testing, testing methods, and criteria-level definitions are defined. Key metrics for quantized performance evaluation indexes including false accept rate (FAR), false reject rate (FRR), attack presentation false acceptance (APFAR), and bona fide presentation false rejection rate (BFPFRR) are also defined. Criteria levels for testing the performance indexes are specified, including the detailed steps, environment, and minimum requirements.

IEEE Standard for Performance Evaluation of Biometric Information: Fingerprint Recognition

The components of a fingerprint test system for smart devices, such as a mobile phone are specified in this standard. Test system requirements are specified together with criteria for performance evaluation, testing methods and procedures and result reporting. Performance metrics which reflect expected device usage are specified, including false accept rate and false reject rate. Multiple testing levels are defined to support a variety of device types.
