Paper Abstract

The increasing demand on enhanced security has led to an unprecedented interest in automated personal identification based on biometrics. Among the various biometric identification methods, iris recognition is widely regarded as the most reliable and is one of the most active research topics in biometrics. Significant progress has been made since the concept of automated iris recognition was first proposed in 1987, not only in research and algorithm development but also in commercial exploitation and practical applications. This paper provides an overview on recent progress in iris recognition and discusses some of the remaining challenges and possible future work in this exciting field.
