UAE iris scanning system world's best

posted on 05/09/2005: 993 views

A UAE research study on the iris scanning system installed at checkpoints nationwide shows no false matches in about 200 billion cross-comparisons of different iris patterns. According to the scientific study conducted by Dr John Daugman of the University of Cambridge, the system developed and installed in the country is one of the most foolproof and reliable sources of identification.

Dr Daugman used 632,500 different iris patterns that allowed 200 billion comparisons to examine for matches as part of the study to prove that it is the most reliable technology to use for security purposes. The patterns were made available from the Ministry of Interior's database for the study. The database was built after the introduction of the scanning system in January 2003.

The UAE is the first country in the world to fully implement iris scanning at all its entry/exit points. All its air, sea and land immigration counters have the system. He has already presented his study to Lieutenant General Sheikh Saif Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Minister of Interior, and briefed him on its outcome.

The research is called The UAE Iris Study: Results from 200 billion iris cross-comparisons. He said the UAE iris database has proved it is the world's largest biometric technology used for verification. Dr Daugman said the UAE example can be used anywhere in the world for border security.
