Passive 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.

Passive Imposter Acceptance refers to one of these eventualities. More specifically, it refers to a person gaining control of an identity already on the system, by modifying their own biometric data (or falsifying biometric data) to match one of the identity templates already on the system, and thus take over that user's identity from the computer's point of view.

In the years since this animation short came out, normal passive CG specialists have caught up. The question we ask here is, how come it took four years for them to catch up?
