retina detection

The retina is the retina of the eye. Like the iris, it is evaluated for biometric authentication procedures. The retina, which converts light into nerve impulses, has a distinctive structure that is suitable for biometric recognition.

Like iris recognition, retina recognition involves scanning the structures of the blood pathways while scanning infrared light. The invariance and uniqueness of retinal recognition are extremely high, with a ratio of over 1:1 million.

The false acceptance rate of retinal recognition is relatively low and lies in the per mille range; in contrast, the falsification reliability is very high. However, the acceptance rate of retinal recognition is much lower than that of iris recognition.
