Biometric systems are getting more attention in the present era.
Iris recognition is one of the most secure and authentic among
the other biometrics and this field demands more authentic,
reliable and fast algorithms to implement these biometric
systems in real time. In this paper, an efficient localization
technique is presented to identify pupil and iris boundaries using
histogram of the iris image. Two small portions of iris have been
used for polar transformation to reduce computational time and
to increase the efficiency of the system. Wavelet transform is
used for feature vector generation. Rotation of iris is
compensated without shifts in the iris code. System is tested on
Multimedia University Iris Database and results show that
proposed system has encouraging performance.
