  1. 1. IRIS RECOGNITION  Presented by:-  Name:-Anurag anand  Roll no:-1109633010  Branch:-E.T. (7th sem.)
  2. 2. The need for biometrics Biometrics consists of methods for uniquely recognizing humans based upon one or more intrinsic physical or behavioral traits. The need for biometrics: o Rapid development in technology o Globalization
  3. 3. Biometrics and Iris Scanning
  4. 4. Anatomy of the Human Eye • Eye = Camera • Cornea bends, refracts, and focuses light. • Retina = Film for image projection (converts image into electrical signals). • Optical nerve transmits signals to the brain.
  5. 5. What is Iris?  The coloured ring around the pupil of the eye is called the iris ,like a snowflake.  Controls light levels inside the eye.  Tiny muscles that dilate and constrict the pupil size.  Divides the front of the eye from the back of the eye.  Color comes from melanin. brown or black in colour
  6. 6. Individuality of Iris Left and right eye irises have distinctive pattern.
  7. 7. Characteristics of Iris  Has highly distinguishing texture.  Right eye differs from left eye.  Twins have different iris texture.  Iris pattern remains unchanged after the age of two and does not degrade overtime or with the environment.  Iris patterns are extremely complex than other biometric patterns.
  8. 8. What Is It? . Going the layman way the biometric identification of the iris is called as “IRIS SCANNING”. “Iris recognition is a method of biometric authentication that uses pattern-recognition techniques based on high-resolution images of the irides of an individual's eyes.”
  9. 9. WHY ? 400 identifying features The iris is a living password Artificial duplication is virtually impossible Probability of matching of two irises is 1:1078 Genetic independency Its inherent isolation and protection from the external environment.
  10. 10. WHEN? 1936 • Idea was proposed by ophthalmologist Frank Burch 1980 • Appeared in the Bond Films 1987 • Aram Safir & leonard Flom patented the idea and asked John Dougman to create actual algorithms for that. John Dougman created this algorithm and patented that in the same year.. 1987 • Licensee Sensar deployed special cameras in ATMs of NCR corps 1997-1999 • “Panasonic Authenticam” was ready for use in public places like airports
  12. 12. Iris on the Move: Acquisition of Images To acquire images with sufficient resolution and sharpness to support recognition. A. Optics and Camera: Human heads are on the order of 15 cm wide. In case of a portal, we needed a capture volume width on the order of 20–30 cm. More than 200 pixels or more across the iris- Good quality. Of 150–200 pixels across the iris – Acceptable quality Of 100–150 pixels to be of- Marginal quality. B. Illumination: The shutter is only open during the strobe to reduce the effect of ambient light. C. Coarse Segmentation: Daugman algorithm expects 640 x 480 images.
  13. 13. Iris Localization  Both the inner boundary and the outer boundary of a typical iris can be taken as circles.  But the two circles are usually not co-centric. The inner boundary between the pupil and the iris is detected.  The outer boundary of the iris is more difficult to detect because of the low contrast between the two sides of the boundary.  The outer boundary is detected by maximizing changes of the perimeter-normalized along the circle.
  14. 14. Iris Normalization  The size of the pupil may change due to the variation of the illumination and the associated elastic deformations in the iris texture may interfere with the results of pattern matching.  Since both the inner and outer boundaries of the iris have been detected, it is easy to map the iris ring to a rectangular block of texture of a fixed size. 14
  15. 15. Pattern Matching How closely the produced code matches the encoded features stored in the database. One technique for comparing two Iris Codes is to use the Hamming distance, which is the number of corresponding bits that differ between the two Iris Codes.

  19. 19. Merits  Highly protected, internal organ of the eye  Externally visible; patterns imaged from a distance  Iris patterns possess a high degree of randomness Uniqueness: set by combinatorial complexity Changing pupil size confirms natural physiology  Limited genetic penetrance of iris patterns  Patterns apparently stable throughout life.  A key advantage of iris recognition is its stability, or template longevity, as, barring trauma, a single enrollment can last a lifetime.
  20. 20. Demerits  Small target (1 cm) to acquire from a distance (1m)  Located behind a curved, wet, reflecting surface  Obscured by eyelashes, lenses, reflections  Partially occluded by eyelids, often drooping  Deforms non-elastically as pupil changes size  Illumination should not be visible or bright.
  21. 21. Applications  . ATMs  .Fugitive track record  .Computer login: The iris as a living password.  · National Border Controls: The iris as a living password.  · Ticket less air travel.  · Premises access control (home, office, laboratory etc.).  · Driving licenses and other personal certificates.  · Entitlements and benefits authentication.  · Forensics, birth certificates, tracking missing or wanted person  · Credit-card authentication.  · Automobile ignition and unlocking; anti-theft devices.  · Anti-terrorism (e.g.:— suspect Screening at airports)  · Secure financial transaction (e-commerce, banking).  · Internet security, control of access to privileged information.
  22. 22. National Geographic: 1984 and 2002
  23. 23. Sharbat Gula  The remarkable story of Sharbat Gula, first photographed in 1984 aged 12 in a refugee camp in Pakistan by National Geographic (NG) photographer Steve McCurry, and traced 18 years later to a remote part of Afghanistan where she was again photographed by McCurry.  So the NG turned to the inventor of automatic iris recognition, John Daugman at the University of Cambridge.  The numbers Daugman got left no question in his mind that the eyes of the young Afghan refugee and the eyes of the adult Sharbat Gula belong to the same person.

  25. 25. Iris is seen as the saviour of the UID project in India. A U.S. Marine Corps Sergeant uses an iris scanner to positively identify a member of the Baghdadi city council prior to a meeting with local tribal leaders, sheiks, community leaders and U.S. service members.
