  title={Toward Covert Iris Biometric Recognition: Experimental Results From the NICE Contests},
  author={Hugo Proença and Lu{\'i}s A. Alexandre},
  journal={IEEE Transactions on Information Forensics and Security},
This paper announces and discusses the experimental results from the Noisy Iris Challenge Evaluation (NICE), an iris biometric evaluation initiative that received worldwide participation and whose main innovation is the use of heavily degraded data acquired in the visible wavelength and uncontrolled setups, with subjects moving and at widely varying distances. The NICE contest included two separate phases: 1) the NICE.I evaluated iris segmentation and noise detection techniques and 2) the NICE… CONTINUE READING
