Iris as a biometric is very rich in terms of information content. It provides one of the most secure methods of authentication and identification thanks to its unique characteristics. Once the image of the iris has been Captured using a standard camera, the authentication process, involving comparing the current subject's iris with the stored version, is one of the most accurate with very low false acceptance and rejection rates. The paper proposes two alternative algorithms for iris recognition. The first involves the arrangement of spatial patterns of the iris image, and is detected by application of canny edge detector.
