A new iris recognition system based on complex wavelet Transforms is described. In this work iris recognition based on Gabor wavelet and Morlet wavelet are described. The most unique phenotypic feature visible in a person's face is the detailed texture of each eye's iris. The visible texture of a person's iris is encoded into a compact sequence of 2-D wavelet coefficients, which generate an ldquoiris coderdquo of 4096-bits. The statistical parameters like mean and covariance of coefficients of the iris images are also computed. Two different iris codes are compared using exclusively OR comparisons. Also the new iris pattern is compared against the stored pattern after computing the probability of new iris pattern and identification is performed.
