Abstract

This algorithm increases the effectiveness of typical Personal Identification Verification (PIV) systems. PIV systems utilize various identification tests; for example, an instrumented pen may be used to measure accelerations, timings, pen lifts, etc., which occur during the writing of a signature, and these can be compared to a previously recorded profile. The failure rate of a typical PIV system is measured by the rate at which the system both incorrectly rejects individuals with valid identities and accepts individuals with false identities.
