Abstract
This report presents the outcomes of the “Risk analysis of face and iris biometrics in border/access control applications” (CSSP-2013-CP-1020) study conducted by the Canada Border Services Agency in partnership with the University of Calgary through support from the Defence Research and Development Canada, Canadian Safety and Security Program (CSSP). This study relates directly to the technologies that apply to e-passportbased gate systems and iris-recognition-based registered traveller programs such as NEXUS. It also contributes to the development of a new generation of automated border control (ABC) systems and processes that are currently being developed by many countries, including Canada. The summarized outcomes include: establishing the terminology, metrics and tools for describing and analyzing ABC systems, analysis of issues with currently deployed systems, and investigation into further development of ABC and other traveller screening technologies within a larger e-border process that deals with automation of traveller clearance at the border.
