Abstract: In this paper, we present a new method for iris recognition based on specific texture analysis. It relies on the use of Haar wavelet analysis to extract the texture of the iris tissue. The matching is done using a specific correlation based on local peaks detection. Experiments have been conducted on the CASIA database in verification mode and show an EER of 0.07%. Degraded version of the CASIA database results in an EER of 2.3%, which is lower than result obtained by the classical wavelet demodulation (WD) method in that database.
