This document describes the software framework of an ocular biometric system. The framework encompasses several interconnected components that allow an end-user to perform biometric enrollment, verification, and identification with most common eye tracking devices. The framework, written in C#, includes multiple state-of-the-art biometric algorithms and information fusion techniques, and can be easily extended to utilize new biometric techniques and eye tracking devices.

EyeVEIL: degrading iris authentication in eye tracking headsets

This paper presents a low cost solution to degrade iris authentication while still permitting the utility of gaze tracking with acceptable accuracy, and urges the community to think about iris based authentication as a byproduct of eye tracking, and create solutions that empower a user to control this biometric.

Detecting the onset of eye fatigue in a live framework

The proposed method, which uses fixation data, does not rely as heavily on the sampling rate of the eye tracker as do methods which use saccade data, making it more suitable for lower cost eye trackers such as mobile and wearable devices.




Multimodal ocular biometrics approach: A feasibility study

The experiments indicate that the combined ocular traits improve the accuracy of the resulting system and have the potential to enhance the accuracy and counterfeit-resistance of existing and future biometric systems.

A brand new technique of performing human identification which is based on eye movements characteristic, which compiles behavioral and physiological aspects and therefore it is difficult to counterfeit and at the same time it is easy to perform.

Biometric identification via an oculomotor plant mathematical model

A new biometric approach that involves an estimation of the unique oculomotor plant or eye globe muscle parameters from an eye movement trace provides a number of advantages for biometric identification: it includes both behavioral and physiological human attributes, is difficult to counterfeit, non-intrusive, and could easily be incorporated into existing biometric systems to provide an extra layer of security.
