Protect Iris Database Groundtruth (PROTI-GT)

This is "The Multimedia Signal Processing and Security Lab", short WaveLab, website. We are a research group at the Computer Sciences Department of the University of Salzburg headed by Andreas Uhl. The short name "WaveLab" already indicates that wavelets are among our favorite tools - we have 15 years of experience in this area. Our research is focused on Multimedia Security including Watermarking, Image and Video Compression, Medical Image Classification, and Biometrics.


Heinz Hofbauer, Ehsaneddin Jalilian, and Andreas Uhl: ''Exploiting superior CNN-based iris segmentation for better recognition accuracy'', in Pattern Recognition Letters 120, 2019.
DOI: 10.1016/j.patrec.2018.12.021


This package only provides the ground truth (and mask files) for the PROTECT Multimodal Iris DB version 1, the actual database containing the iris images can be requested at: http://projectprotect.eu/dataset.

Operator A was Ehsaneddin Jalilian.

The software for parameterization of CNN created masks is included in the USIT 2.4.2 release.

The software to use this parameter files is the USIT (`manuseg`).

The USIT is available at http://www.wavelab.at/sources/USIT.




This package only contains the masks and parameters to generate the masks.
