Iris and Periocular Biometric Recognition
Iris recognition technologies for identity management are already deployed globally in several large-scale nationwide biometric projects and are currently entering the mobile market. More recently, periocular recognition has been employed to augment the biometric performance of the iris in unconstrained environments where only the ocular region is present in the image.
Iris and Periocular Biometric Recognition provides an overview of scientific fundamentals and principles of iris and periocular biometric recognition over six broad areas: an introduction to iris and periocular recognition; a selective overview of issues and challenges; soft biometric classification; security aspects; privacy protection and forensics; and future trends. With contributions from experts in industry and academia, this book is essential reading for researchers, graduate students and practitioners in biometrics and related fields.
