Biometric systems provide automatic identification of the people base on their own characteristic features. Unlike the other biometric systems such as face, voice, vein, fingerprint recognitions, iris has randomly scattered features. Iris recognition is considered as the one of the most reliable and accurate biometric identification system. It consists of four stages such as; image acquisition, image preprocessing, image feature extraction, and image matching process. In this work, we are…

Optimization of Several Parameters in Iris Recognition Extended Abstract
A new metric is used that allows us to segment the iris after the authors have preselected the best circle candidates in the Hough space and has a direct effect on the overall accuracy of the Iris Recognition rate.
Detailed Analysis of IRIS Recognition Performance
The CASIA version 1 database of iris images used in this study has been modified by the addition of artificial noise in order to simulate practical real life in situ noisy iris capture environments and it was concluded that the 2D Gabor Filters produce a lower equal error rate (EER), higher accuracy and decidability than by using the one-dimensional log Gabor filter.
Improved segmentation algorithm and further optimization for iris recognition
A new segmentation technique and two new encoding schemes are proposed for Iris recognition and the segmentation is improved and as a result the accuracy and equal error rate also are improved.
Iris Recognition Performance Analysis for Noncooperative Conditions
A comparison is made of the relative accuracy of utilizing noisy iris datasets using Daugman’s method and adjustment of the Gabor filters’ bandwidth used in the encoding stage proves to be decisive in improving the accuracy for higher noise levels.
Sound steganography using Shamir secret sharing scheme
This work proposes to hide an image in several other images after it is separated in pieces and then reconstruct it in a similar way to the Shamir secret sharing scheme.


Efficient iris recognition by characterizing key local variations
The basic idea is that local sharp variation points, denoting the appearing or vanishing of an important image structure, are utilized to represent the characteristics of the iris.
Review of Iris Recognition : An evolving Biometrics Identification Technology
The estimation results reveal, as expected, that a wide variety of factors affect security transit times including the number of enplaning seats, weather conditions, day of week, as well as obvious variables such as traveler volume and thenumber of open security lanes.
