Due to usability features, practical applications, and its lack of intrusiveness, face recognition technology, based on information derived from individuals' facial features has been attracting considerable attention recently. Reported recognition rates of commercialized face recognition systems cannot be admitted as official recognition rates, as they are based on assumptions that are beneficial to the specific system and face database. Therefore, performance evaluation methods and tools are necessary to objectively measure the accuracy and performance of any face recognition system. In this paper, we propose a performance evaluation model for biometric recognition evaluation tools, implementing an evaluation tool for face recognition systems based on the proposed model. Furthermore, we performed evaluations objectively, by providing guidelines for the design and implementation of a performance evaluation system, formalizing the performance test process.
