Iris recognition is an automated method of biometric identification. Now in current world most of the iris comparison systems uses sequential and parallel execution but when iris dataset is large i.e. big data then in that case it has certain deficiencies like speed, complexity of dividing data, handling large data and robustness. So, the authors are implementing Iris recognition process using an open source technology known as Hadoop. Hadoop technology is based on most popular programming model used to handle big data i.e. MapReduce framework.
