Abstract

In this paper, we present an iris recognition system considering counterfeit attacks. The proposed system takes multi-spectral images instead of one infrared iris image. The energy of the multi-spectral images is checked and the authentication is failed if the amount of the energy is not in the proper range. Then the images are normalized and merged into a grayscale image by using a gradient-based image fusion algorithm. In the fusion process, the images considered to be from a counterfeited iris are merged into a poor-quality image which successively generates poor matching score. We show that the proposed scheme successfully maintains the performance of real iris images preventing the counterfeit attacks with experimental results.
