Abstract: Abstract. In this paper, we present a new method for iris identification particularly convenient for visible light images. It relies on the use of packets of wavelets for the production of an code-vector. Experiments, conducted on a database of 700 iris images, acquired with visible light illumination, show an improvement of 1.5 % of FRR and of around 12 % of FAR with the proposed method relatively to the classical wavelet method.
