Does anyone have some insight as to how to reduce the type II error rate to a very low rate, even at the expense of increasing the type I error rate?

In other words, we want to make sure an imposter would not be recognized as an authorized user even if we end up rejecting a high percentage of authorized user.

Thanks for any help/idea

Get the accuracy of recognition, and if it's below a threshold - reject.

Would that work for you?
