Effect of Severe Image Compression on Iris Recognition Performance

  title={Effect of Severe Image Compression on Iris Recognition Performance},
  author={John Daugman and Cathryn Downing},

We investigate three schemes for severe compression of iris images in order to assess what their impact would be on recognition performance of the algorithms deployed today for identifying people by this biometric feature. Currently, standard iris images are 600 times larger than the IrisCode templates computed from them for database storage and search; but it is administratively desired that iris data should be stored, transmitted, and embedded in media in the form of images rather than as… CONTINUE READING
