This paper a new biometric method for personal identification is been presented by iris identification of a person in lower dimensionality and reduced template size than the other previous approaches in 2D Eigen space, so that it can be use for verification in application areas . Here the iris images are expressed in lower dimension, re-tending its features by using covariance matrix and Eigen matrix to a covariant-Eigen space vector. The proposed approach is also suitable to work on half iris image. The proposed approach shows high accurate result.
