The widespread use of smartphones has spurred the research in mobile iris devices. Due to their convenience, these mobile devices are also utilized in unconstrained outdoor scenarios. This has necessitated the development of reliable iris recognition algorithms for such uncontrolled environment. At the same time, iris presentation attacks pose a major challenge to current iris recognition systems. It has been shown that print attacks and textured contact lens may significantly degrade the iris recognition performance. Motivated by these factors, we present a novel Mobile Uncontrolled Iris Presentation Attack Database (MUIPAD). The database contains more than 10,000 iris images that are acquired with and without textured contact lenses in indoor and outdoor environments using a mobile sensor. We also investigate the efficacy of textured contact lens in identity impersonation and obfuscation. Moreover, we demonstrate the effectiveness of deep learning based features for iris presentation attack detection on the proposed database. © 2018 IEEE.
