Iris recognition market size: rapid growth advantage
Iris recognition is the most secure identification method in biometric technology. It has the following advantages: uniqueness, even using cloning techniques can‘t replicate an iris. And extremely stable, once formed, permanent. The general disease will not cause injury to iris tissue, and will not cause wear and tear due to occupational factors. High anti-counterfeiting, strong biological activity. It is easy to be accepted by the public without the need for user access to the equipment and the physical inviolability.
At present iris recognition application field is very wide, whether it‘s physical space or in cyberspace, as long as it is personnel identification can be used, including security clearance can use iris, iris, or security on terror were used some terrorists can makeup can even her face, or replace the fingerprint by burns, but the counterterrorism requires accurate recognition, iris is a very important way. At present our technology also in foreign bank ATM machine with iris id card can withdraw money.
Samsung released a new mobile phone is to use the iris recognition, pay treasure will iris recognition, they are also clearly is a very important in the direction of the iris using in the future, because fingerprints can be fraud, probably through false fingerprints can steal money pay treasure inside, including touch glass cups because fingerprints can steal in security attacks.
