UIDAI Introduces 16-Digit Virtual Aadhaar ID For More Security!

Aadhaar biometric lock UIDAI Introduces 16-Digit Virtual Aadhaar ID For More Security!

UIDAI will start issuing Virtual ID from March 01, 2018.

This was followed by a tweet from the official account of the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) referring to the report as "fake news", last Thursday.

VID will be a temporary ID, which could be revoked.

UIDAI announced the creation of a "virtual ID" which can be used in lieu of the 12-digit Aadhaar number at the time of authentication of any services.

Where to get the VID? .

The order issued by the UIDAI on Wednesday would define two types of authentication agencies, as opposed to the earlier single Authentication User Agency, or AUA. You can also generate/replace VIDs on the Aadhaar mobile app and at enrolment centres. To use the IVR verification option, your mobile number has to be registered with the UIDAI database and your Aadhaar card and mobile number should be from the same state.

The newest government security measures, announced late Wednesday, will allow users to generate a randomly-generated virtual ID or token to avoid sharing their direct Aadhaar number for authentication, according to the government notice. Only the former will have full access to e-KYC details and can store Aadhaar numbers. Also, as per UIDAI, service providers that undertake authentication will not be allowed to generate any Virtual ID on behalf of Aadhaar holders. ET Online checked websites of Airtel, Vodafone, Idea and BSNL, and only the public sector provider BSNL, has made the online alternative available to its subscribers.

A VID is a temporary 16-digit number which is mapped with the Aadhaar number. "And by June 1, all agencies would have to fully migrate to the new system". "You may still have to give your Aadhaar ID to certain service providers, and that continues to put your data at risk", he argues. Still, it's the biggest overhaul of the system - known as Aadhaar - since it was introduced in 2010.

Update: There are some more details now, although they come courtesy the Economic Times website and are yet to be officially confirmed by UIDAI or any other government agency.

"There is hundred per cent an orchestrated campaign to see how Aadhaar gets maligned, yes absolutely", PTI quoted Nilekani as telling a TV channel on the sidelines of an event, in response to the filing of an FIR against The Tribune newspaper over a report related to Aadhaar data breach. The limited KYC categories will be "local AUAs".

This new security mechanism will kickstart from March 2018.

The UIDAI's and the government's cavalier attitude towards security in Aadhaar has been exposed many times over. "The concept is attractive, but the devil is in the details", observed Pavan Duggal, cyberlaw expert, adding that the new system does not address those who have already gained unauthorised access to Aadhaar numbers.
