The IREX 10: Identification Track assesses iris recognition performance for identification (a.k.a one-to-many) applications. Most flagship deployments of iris recognition operate in identification mode, providing services ranging from prison management, border security, expedited processing, and distribution of resources. Administered at the Image Group's Biometrics Research Lab (BRL), developers submit their matching software for testing over sequestered iris data. As an ongoing evaluation, developers may submit at any time from Sept 30, 2019 onwards.
Instructions on building a submission can be found in the concept of operations (CONOPS) document. The CONOPS document is supplemented by the API documentation which was autogenerated from the header files irex.h and structs.h. To assist with development, a minimal working "stub" (a.k.a null implementation) is also available. See also our FAQ.

Comprehensive results for all participants will be presented in the latest IREX 10: Identification Track report once published.
The leaderboard will show the most accurate iris recognition algorithms evaluated in the IREX 10: Identification Track. Accuracy will be assessed using the standard error metrics FNIR and FPIR. A short introduction to these error metrics and how they relate to the performance of real-world biometric systems is presented on the Performance Metrics page.
How to Participate
Participants are allowed to submit an implementation every 3 calendar months.
