Iris biometrics measure the unique patterns in the colored part of a user’s eye. Incredibly accurate, quick and contactless, biometrics that scan a user’s irises are considered ideal for wearable technology and Internet of Things applications.
Indeed, on residential door locks, the technology has proven popular, winning awards at physical access conferences. Recently, iris-based identity solutions have made their way to consumer mobile devices—handsets from Nokia and Fujitsu leverage the modality for user authentication. Some in the academic community has thrown support behind this eye-based modality as a consumer authentication solution, and it has long been a favorite modality for those who speculate on phone security rumors.
In 2015, with the launch of Windows 10’s Windows Hello security platform, iris recognition became much more accessible to users looking for a biometric technology to secure their devices.
