Iris recognition is a proven, accurate means to identify people. An efficient method for personal identification based on the pattern of human iris is proposed in this paper. Crypto-biometrics is an emerging architecture where cryptography and biometrics are merged to achieve high level security systems. Iris recognition is a method for biometric authentication that uses pattern-recognition techniques based on high-resolution images of the irides of an individual. Here, the authors discuss about recognizing the iris and comparing the pattern of the iris for reliable authentication.
