Abstract
Iris biometrics systems rely on analysis of a visual presentation of the human iris, which must be extracted from the periocular region. Topical cosmetics can greatly alter the appearance of the periocular region, and can occlude portions of the iris texture. In this paper, the presence of topical cosmetics is shown to negatively impact the authentic distribution of iris match scores, causing an increase in the false non-match rate at a fixed false match rate.
