A biometric system provides special and automatic identification of an individual based on characteristics and unique features showed by individuals. This paper examines the developing automated iris recognition for personal identification in order to verify both uniqueness of the human iris and also its performance as a biometric based on Hu invariant moment. The iris recognition system consists of the iris acquisition system and iris authentication algorithm. The algorithm of the processing for the iris recognition is also able to localize the pupil region and circular iris, occluding eyelashes and eyelids, and reflections. The system performed with a test on 108 images resulted on false accept rates (FAR) and false rejected rates (FRR). The performance measured which was stored in the database scored 0% each for FRR and FAR since the Hu invariance moments had matched perfectly. Therefore, iris recognition is shown to be an accurate and reliable biometric technology.
