University of Notre Dame biometrics researchers "Kevin Bowyer":http://news.nd.edu/for-the-media/nd-experts/faculty/kevin-bowyer/ and "Estefan Ortiz":http://engineering.nd.edu/profiles/eortiz have released a paper that points to errors in the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) report on how iris aging affects the accuracy of iris recognition. In addition to describing specific methodological errors in the NIST report, Bowyer and Ortiz presented a list of suggestions to be addressed in a revised version of the NIST report.
