Equal Error Rate

The equal error rate or EER, sometimes referred to as the crossover error rate or CER, is a biometric error rate. It occurs when the false acceptance rate and false rejection rate of a biometric system are exactly the same. If one is higher, then the equal error rate is considered to be the highest rate of the lower value – the last value where both are the same.

The lower the EER is, the better quality the biometric system is considered to be, and it is a handy short form for gauging the tolerance levels of the system.
