Abstract: In this paper, we propose an efficient and accurate technique to process iris biometric. Our approach handles degraded quality of eye images, occlusion of eyelids and eyelashes. Our approach considers non-circular pupil and iris boundary. With our approach it is possible to store an iris template with 304 bits only unlike 1024 bits used in majority of the existing approaches. Further, we assign different weights to different iris regions enabling us to compare two iris templates with a lesser number of features and thus achieving better accuracy. Experimental results on several iris databases establish the efficacy of our approach.
