eyelock, the advanced iris based identity management company has spent the past few years focusing on improving identity-based product and technology, from access control, border solutions and transportation to advanced banking and payments applications. during CES 2014, the new york-based tech lab unveiled ‘myris’, an iris authentication scanner for device login security and password administration.

the palm-sized identification reader uses a 20 frame per second video capture of your irises to verify your identity for logging into your favorite websites and apps. since no two irises are alike, the chances of a false match are less than one in two trillion. ‘myris’ looks at more than 240 points on each iris to generate a unique 2048-bit digital signature. to properly authenticate one’s ID, it needs to match up with your eyes— existing photos and video recordings won’t work.
