A biometric system provides automatic identification of an individual based on a unique feature or characteristic possessed by the individual. Iris recognition is regarded as the most reliable and accurate biometric identification system available. In the Department of Defense and in the Department of Homeland Security, iris recognition plays a very important role. At first image acquisition is done, the image is subjected to the calculation of histogram and then binarization is conducted. The performance of iris recognition system highly depends on edge detection. The Canny Edge Detector is one of the most commonly used image processing tools; it detects the edges in a very robust manner.
