Paper Abstract

A novel approach to iris recognition is proposed in this paper. It differs from traditional iris recognition systems in that it generates a one-dimensional iris signature that is translation, rotation, illumination and scale invariant. The Du Measurement was used as a matching mechanism, and this approach generates the most probable matches instead of only the best match. The merit of this method is that it allows users to enroll with or to identify poor quality iris images that would be rejected by other methods. In this way, the users could potentially identify an iris image by another level of analysis. Another merit of this approach is that this method could potentially improve iris identification efficiency. In our approach, the system only needs to store a one-dimensional signal, and in the matching process, no circular rotation is needed. This means that the matching speed could be much faster.
