Abstract: Iris is an evenly highlighted radial membrane with complex patterns that are perceptible upon near inspection, which exists behind the cornea of the eye with a changeable circular opening called the pupil. Iris Recognition System is a technique of identifying people using those complex distinctive features in patterns. Generally, Iris recognition system is used in security allied applications such as, authenticating PCs, network and mobile devices, physical and logical premises access control, national border control, secure banking and financial transactions, national identity like AADHAAR in India etc. This paper reviews the state-of-art design and implementation of various iris recognition systems. The contributions of the paper include: 1) conferring the importance, applications and deployment of iris recognition system related to human identification; 2) providing an analysis on iris recognition methods in effect; 3, discussing the present research defies; 4) providing commendations for the future research on iris recognition system.

Keywords: iris recognition; pattern recognition; segmentation; normalisation; feature extraction; visually impaired people; Alzheimer's disease; acquisition; smart wearable; person identification.
