This paper proposes an approach to iris recognition system for securely authenticating user. Eye images are captured using a USB webcam and are enhanced. Segmentation is done using an algorithm based on hough transform . Then the selected portion of image is converted to polar coordinates. Distinctive features of the iris are extracted using Haar wavelet transform and encoded. Iris binary codes after filteration will be stored in system database & hamming distance calculation is done for comparing two codes.
