Iris identification requires that the iris match a pre-recorded iris template stored in the on-board iris database.
Constructing an iris database is important to evaluate the performance of automatic iris recognition systems.
Because of the difficulty in collecting iris samples, there are only few benchmark databases available.
Moreover, various types of iris are required to measure how robust the system is in various environments.
