Computer scientist Oleg Komogortsev and a team at Texas State University are working to make iris recognition more secure and harder to fool.
According to a new report, Komogortsev’s method for biometric identification involves multiple biometric readings including a scan of the iris, recording the movement of the eye globe and its muscles, and surveying where a person’s brain focuses visual attention.
The new method is actually compatible with existing iris recognition technology, meaning that the improvement in accuracy can be achieved through a software upgrade.
Along with applications in identity verification, this technology can also determine an individual’s fatigue or stress.
