Biometric systems are increasingly being used as a means for authentication to provide system
security in modern technologies. The performance of a biometric system depends on the accuracy,
the processing speed, the template size, and the time necessary for enrollment. While much research
has focused on the first three factors, enrollment time has not received as much attention. In this
work, we present the findings of our research focused upon studying user’s behavior when enrolling in
a biometric system. Specifically, we collected information about the user’s availability for enrollment in
respect to the hand recognition systems (e.g., hand geometry, palm geometry or any other requiring
positioning the hand on an optical scanner). A sample of 19 participants, chosen randomly apart their
age, gender, profession and nationality, were used as test subjects in an experiment to study the
patience of users enrolling in a biometric hand recognition system.
