"Biometric technologies such as fingerprint, facial recognition, and iris recognition are deployed for verification and/or identification in applications such as access control, border management, and ID systems. Biometric technology's accuracy and usability--measured in terms of match rates, enrollment and acquisition rates, and transaction durations--are often central factors in deployment decisions. The U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) sponsored a test of iris recognition accuracy, usability, and interoperability referred to as Independent Testing of Iris Recognition Technology (ITIRT). Executed by International Biometric Group (IBG), ITIRT ran from July 2004 to April 2005. The scenario test evaluated enrollment and matching software from Iridian and acquisition devices from LG, OKI, and Panasonic."
