In the world of modern communication, securing information is a very important task. Hence Cryptographic systems are integral parts of communication systems in majority applications. Security requirements demand that these systems need to be operated with large secret keys. Since it is very difficult to remember large private keys, these keys are replaced by biometric features and this is called biometric security. The biometric identification system is one of the royal technologies used in the recognition system. Iris recognition system is the most reliable system for an individual identification. Of all biometrics-based techniques, the iris pupils and the outer areas provide very high accuracies in verifying an individual's identity.
