Person recognition is a challenging research problem particularly if the images are captured at a distance and only ocular region is present. In this research, we present a framework that extracts multiple features from iris and periocular regions from near infrared images captured at a distance of 2 meters or more. Using these features and random decision forest, fusion and classification is performed and verification results are reported. On CASIA V4-at-a-distance and FOCS databases, the proposed algorithm yields state-of-the-art results; particularly achieving over 61% genuine accept rate at 0.1% false accept rate on complete CASIA V4-at-a-distance database. © 2016 IEEE.
