For Entry-Exit technologies, such as US VISIT and Smart Borders (e-borders), a watchlist normally contains high-quality biometric traits and is checked only against visitors. The situation can change drastically if low-quality images are added into the watchlist. Motivated by this fact, we introduce a systematic approach to assessing the risk of travellers using a biometric-enabled watchlist where some latency of the biometric traits is allowed. The main results presented herein include: (1) a taxonomical view of the watchlist technology, and (2) a novel risk assessment technique. For modelling the watchlist landscape, we propose a risk categorisation using the Doddington metric. We evaluate via experimental study on large-scale facial and fingerprint databases, the risks of impersonation and mis-identification in various screening scenarios. Other contributions include a study of approaches to designing a biometric-enabled watchlist for e-borders: a) risk control and b) improving performance of the e-border via integrating the interview supporting machines.
