Design for UID Numbers in India

Date: 2012-05-31 (11:00-12:00) Location: Lecture Room (074), Fraunhofer IGD, Fraunhoferstraße 5, 64283 Darmstadt, Germany

Organizer: Fraunhofer IGD in cooperation with the European Association for Biometrics
Attendance is free of charge, no registration is required
Speakers: R.S. Sharma (Director General & Mission Director of the Unique Identification Authority of India )

Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) has been setup by the Govt. of India with a mandate to issue a unique identification number to all the residents in the country. UIDAI proposes to create a platform to first collect the identity details and then to perform authentication that can be used by several government and commercial services providers. A key requirement of the UID system is to minimize/eliminate duplicate identity in order to improve the efficacy of the service delivery. UIDAI has selected biometrics feature set as the primary method to check for duplicate identity. In order to ensure that an individual is uniquely identified in an easy and cost-effective manner, it is necessary to ensure that the captured biometric information is capable of carrying out the de-duplication at the time of collection of information. For government and commercial providers to authenticate the identity at the time of service delivery, it is necessary that the biometric information capture and transmission are standardized across all the partners and users of the UID system.

UID provides, online, cost-effective, ubiquitous authentication services across the country and establishes identity. Authentication is transactional and to be done at the time of availing a benefit.

The objective of the UIDAI is to provide a robust, reusable ID to those who do not have any ID proof, cleaning up existing databases of multiple and fake entries through Uniqueness and to improve targeting and delivery of services. It will also reduce the cost of delivery of services.
