Abstract The iris is a highly accurate biometric identifier. Iris recognition can be much more accurate than other biometric modalities such as face, fingerprints, retina and hand geometry. The pressures on system administrators to have secure systems are ever increasing. One area where security can be improved is in authentication and identification thanks to the unique characteristics of the iris. Once the image of the iris has been captured using a standard camera, the authentication process, involving comparing the current subjects Iris with the stored version, is one of the most accurate with very low false acceptance and rejection rates. Iris recognition is of the technique used for personal identification. In this paper an efficient method used for personal identification based on pattern of human iris. It is composed of image capturing, Image preprocessing, template, matching template. Key Words Biometric recognition, Human iris, Image capture, Image preprocessing, matching template. 1. Introduction - In todays information technology world, security for systems is becoming more and more important. The number of systems that have been compromised is ever increasing and authentication plays a major role as a first line of defense against intruders. The three main types of authentication are that you know (such as password), you have (such as a card or token) and you are (biometric). Passwords are notorious for being weak and easily crack able due to human nature and our tendency to make passwords easy to remember or writing them down somewhere easily accessible. Cards and tokens can be presented by anyone and although the tokens can be presented by anyone and although the token or card is recognizable, there is no way of knowing if the person presenting the card is the actual owner. Biometrics, on the other hand, provides a secure method of authentication and identification, as they are difficult to replicate and steal. Biometric authentication has been receiving extensive attention over the past decade with increasing demands in automated personal identification. Among many biometrics techniques, iris recognition has gained match attention due to its high reliability for personal identification. One of the difficult problems in feature-based iris recognitions that the matching performance is significantly influenced by many parameters in feature extraction process. Today, biometric recognition is a common and reliable way to authenticate the identity of a living person based on physiological characteristics, such as fingerprints, iris pattern, facial feature, hand silhouette etc. This kind of measurement is basically unchanging and un alteration without significant duress. A behavioral characteristic is more a reflection of an individuals psychological makeup as signature, speech pattern, or how one types at a keyboard. The degree of intrapersonal variation in a physical characteristic is smaller than a behavioral characteristic. A biometric system provides automatic identification of an individual based a unique feature or characteristic possessed by the individual. Biometric systems have been developed based on finger prints, facial features, voice, hand geometry, hand-working, retina and one presented in this paper i.e. iris recognition. Iris recognition is regarded as the most reliable and accurate biometric identification

system available. Biometric systems work by first capturing a sample of the feature, taking sample is then transformed using mathematical function into a biometric template. Template is normalized, efficient compared with other templates for identification. Biometric systems works on two modes. First by adding a templates to database and second by identification. A biometric is characterized by use of a feature that is unique and lass chance of any two people having the same characteristic will be minimum, it does not have aging problem and prevent damaging of feature. 2.Preamble of Iris Recognition - Iris recognition systems generally operate on iris images collected in the near infrared spectrum typically in the 700-900 nm range with 200 or more pixels across the diameter of the iris. Iris images are processed by first detecting and segmenting the iris. Almost all iris recognition systems use a Daugman style template for matching .Recognition is then achieved by matching the template against a gallery of templates using normalized Hamming distance. Verification Once you have stored the images in the system, its a simple matter to check your identity. You simply stand in front of another iris scanner and have your eye photographed again. The system quickly process the image and extracts your iris Code, before comparing it against the hundreds, thousands, or millions stored in its database. If your code matches one of the stored ones, you are positively identified; if not, it either means you are not known to the system.

In above diagram step are represented it can further elaborated. 2.1Human Iris The iris is a muscle within the eye that regulates the size of the pupil, controlling the amount of light that enters the eye Iris consists of a number of layers the lowest is the epithelium layer, which contains dense pigmentation cells. The stoma layer lies above the epithelium layer

In iris recognition system physical presence of human is necessary for capturing the image which passes

contains blood vessels, pigments cells and two iris muscles. The density of stromal pigmentation determines the color of iris. The extremely visible surface of the multi-layer iris contains two zones, which often differ in color. An outer ciliary zone an inner papillary zone these zones are divided by the collaret which appears in zigzag patterns. Formation of iris begins during the third month of embryonic life during prenatal growth through a process of tight forming and occurs, resulting in the pupil opening and the random, unique patterns of the iris. Although genetically identical, an individuals iris are unique and structurally distinct, which allows for it to be used for recognition purpose. The unique pattern on the surface of the iris is formed and pigmentation of the iris patters, the two eyes of a individual contain completely independent iris patterns, and identical twins possess uncorrelated iris pattern. 2.2Iiris Recognition Iris is an externally visible is protected organ whose unique epignetion pattern remains stable throughout adult life. These are characteristics make it very attractive for use a biometric for identifying individuals. Image processing techniques can be employed to extract the unique iris pattern from a digitized image of the eye and encoded it into a biometric template which can be stored in the database. Biometric template contains an objective mathematical representation of the unique information stored in the iris which allows a comparison to be to be made between templates. When a subject wished to be identified by an iris recognition system their eye is first photographed ,and then a template created for their iris region. This

template is then compared with other template stored in a database until either a matching template is found and the subject is identified, or no match is found and the subject remains unidentified. 3.Capturing Image In iris recognition image capturing image is an important step in iris recognition system. Since iris is small in size and dark in color and it is difficult to capture the image good quality image, and subsequent step are depends on first step.

image might have areas of very high and very low intensity, which mask details

. The difficulties in image capturing is of ocular an image quality which is affected by factirs,such as medial opacities, defocus or presence of artifact Image enhancement of an image so that the result is more suitable for subsequent use. This might involve processes, such as improving contrast or brightening an image. 4.2 Image Restoration The purpose of image restoration is to compensate for or undo defects which degrade an image. Degradation comes in many forms such as motion blur, it is possible to come up with a very good estimate of the actual blurring function and undo the blur to restore the original image. Processes in this class aim to reverse damage by known causes. An algorithm is used for removal interference patterns. Noise occurs due to errors in pixel values caused by external disturbance. There are many forms of noise such as periodic noise. 4.3Image Segmentation Image segmentation of an image entails the division or separation of the image into regions of similar attribute. The most basic attribute for a monochrome image and color components for a color image. Image edges and texture are also useful attributes for segmentation. Image processing operations for objects of interest, I.e.at finding suitable local feature that allow us to distinguish them from other objects and from the background. The next step is to check each individual pixel to see whether it belongs to an object of interest or not. This operation is called segmentation and produces a binary image.

. Figure captured image A digital camera has used to take eye snaps while maintain lighting distance and resolution of hew image for better quality. The captured image is used for further processing changing colored image to gray level, a preprocessing is perform. . Todays commercial iris cameras typically use infrared light to illuminate the iris without causing harm or discomfort to subject. 4.Image Preprocessing Iris image preprocessing, including iris localization and image quality evaluation, is the key step in iris recognition and has a close relationship to the accuracy of matching. Image preprocessing operations is used remove unwanted signals capture while capturing the image are remove by applying the preprocessing technique to transform the grey values in pixels. First of all to separate the iris from the image the boundaries of the iris and pupil are detected. Since pupil is the darkest area in the image as shown in figure, Figure shows classification of eyes There are three basic mechanisms by which this can be achieved i.e. Image Enhancement, Image Restoration and Image Segmentation is applied on pattered image. 4.1Image Enhancement Image enhancement improves the quality and clarity of images for human viewing. Removing blurring and noise ,increasing contrast, and revealing details of enhancement operations. For example, an image might be taken of an endothelial cell, which might be of low contrast and somewhat blurred. Reducing the noise and blurring and increasing the contrast range could enhance the image. The original

Image segmentation involves dividing a images into subsections that are of particular interest, such as defining areas of an image that are appropriate to be subsequently analyzed or finding circles, lines or other shapes. Image segmentation can stop when such objects of interest have been isolated. 5.Matching Template Feature selection and extraction is to find out the important feature to do matching. The visible feature of iris of an iris are ciliary,processes,rings,and corona and so on. To set a model to extract important directly, there are many model used to extract the features. Daugman used the 2-D Gabor transform of the normalization iris image to extract the feature .It filter is helpful for analyze the information of an image because it is orientation selection and spatial frequency selective. A Gabor generates the complex valued, and then 256 byte iris code will produce. Different person have different iris texture therefore iris code are different .The Hamming distance gives a measure of how many bits are the same between two bit patterns. Using the Hamming distance of two bit patterns ,a decision can be made as to whether the two patterns were generated from different irises or from the same one. In comparing the bit patterns A and B,the hamming distance,HID,is defined as the sum of disagreeing bits(sum of the exclusive-OR between A and B )over N,the total number of bits in the bit pattern. HD=1/N Ai(XOR)Bi Since an individual iris region contains features with high degrees of freedom ,each iris region will produce a bit-pattern which is independent to that produced by another from the same iris will be highly correlated. If two bits patterns are completely independent, such as iris templates generated from different iris, the Hamming distance between the two patterns should equal 0.5.this occurs because independence implies the two bit patterns will be totally random, so there is 0.5 chance of setting any bit to 1,and vice versa.Therefore,half of the bits will agree and half will disagree between the two patterns. If two patterns are derived from the same iris, the Hamming distance between them will be close to 0.0,since they are highly correlated and the bits should agree

between the two iris codes. The hamming distance is the matching metric employed by Daugman,and calculation of the Hamming distance is taken only with bits that are generated from the actual iris region. to generate the code Daugman has used hamming distance i.e. the higher the hamming distance, their more distinct the two irises are, an if two iris code codes are produced form the same image with hamming distance zero. Algorithm is always the best feature extraction and match method which required little space in the memory to store the information of iris. IRIS Recognition Technology On Mobile Phone Nowadays, the usage of mobile phone and PDA (Personal Digital Assistance) is so common that it becomes critical to keep it secure from unauthorized use. OKI, Japanese leader in telecommunication has recently announced the availability of its Iris recognition middleware that can be implemented on existing mobile phones for better security protection.

Iris recognition technology is not something new to security segment but its application is first being introduced to mobile market. The usage is always limited to high end security application due to sophisticated hardware and software algorithm involved. These are also translated to higher implementation cost which could only be targeted for mid and high end mobile phone series. The middleware is said to be compatible with current mobile phones that are running on either Symbian or Windows Mobile OS. On the hardware requirement, it only requires a 1Megapixies camera to capture the Iris patterns and compare it with correct users Iris for authentication. It is believed that the errors happen no more than one in 100,000 trials (equivalent to 99.99% accuracy). And based on its uniqueness of Iris patterns for each individual, it is the most accurate form of security application in the mobile market as of now. Advantages - The iris of the eye has been described as the ideal part of the human body for biometric identification for several reasons: It is an internal organ that is well protected against damage and wear by a highly transparent and sensitive membrane (the cornea). This distinguishes it from fingerprints, which can be difficult to recognize after years of

certain types of manual labor. The iris is mostly flat, and its geometric configuration is only controlled by two complementary muscles (the sphincter pupillae and dilator pupillae) that control the diameter of the pupil. This makes the iris shape far more predictable than, for instance, that of the face. The iris has a fine texture thatlike fingerprintsis determined randomly during embryonic gestation. Even genetically identical individuals have completely independent iris textures, whereas DNA (genetic "fingerprinting") is not unique for the about 0.2% of the human population who have a genetically identical twin. An iris scan is similar to taking a photograph and can be performed from about 10 cm to a few meters away. There is no need for the person to be identified to touch any equipment that has recently been touched by a stranger, thereby eliminating an objection that has been raised in some cultures against fingerprint scanners, where a finger has to touch a surface, or retinal scanning, where the eye can be brought very close to a lens (like looking into a microscope lens). At Schiphol Airport, Netherlands, iris recognition has permitted passportfree immigration since 2001.

regions. The features of the iris can be encoded by convolving the normalized iris region with Gabor filters and phase quantizing the output in order to produce a bit-wise biometric template. In order to improve the automatic segmentation algorithm, a more elaborate eyelid and eyelash detection system could be implemented. This work can also extended to the system would be an interface to an iris capturing image rather than having a fixed set of iris images from a database for possibility improving the recognition rate by using real time s

Some argue that a focused digital photograph with an iris diameter of about 200 pixels contains much more long-term stable information than a fingerprint. The originally commercially deployed iris-recognition algorithm, John Daugman's Iris Code, has an unprecedented false match rate (better than 1011). While there are some medical and surgical procedures that can affect the color and overall shape of the iris, the fine texture remains remarkably stable over many decades. Some iris identifications have succeeded over a period of about 30 year Conclusion In this paper iris recognition system is used for personal identification. it performs automatic enhancement, restoration and segmentation of an image. Automatic segmentation can be achieved through the use of the pupil regions. In further step the segmented iris and region was normalized to eliminate dimensional inconsistencies between iris
