    The task of forensic facial experts is to assess the likelihood whether a suspect is depicted on crime scene images. They typically (a) use morphological analysis when comparing parts of the facial region, and (b) combine this partial evidence into a final judgment. Facial parts can be considered as soft biometric modalities and in recent years have been studied in the biometric community. In this paper we focus on the region around the eye from a forensic perspective by applying the FISWG feature list of the eye modality. We compare existing work from the soft biometric perspective based on a texture descriptor with our approach.
