Active Impostor Acceptance

When dealing with biometric data for identification purposes rather than purely for control purposes, there is always a risk that the system will identify the wrong person positively. That risk is made as small as possible for obvious reasons, but sometimes there are individuals actively trying to be misidentified in order to gain access under false pretences. With a control-based biometric system too, there are times when some individuals will wish to utterly fool the interface into believing they are a different user – and thus having it vouch for their identity in interaction with other processes.

Active Imposter Acceptance refers to one of these eventualities. More specifically, it refers to a person actively planting a false identity template into the system, so that when the unauthorised person uses the biometric scanners, without compromising the scanned data, the person matches an approved user on the system and is accepted.
