UIDAI to make face verification as new means of Aadhaar authentication

The latest feature comes days after UIDAI announced a two-layer virtual identification mechanism to protect privacy of users The latest feature comes days after UIDAI announced a two-layer virtual identification mechanism to protect privacy of users

However, this new feature will only be available along with one or more authentication factor.

This measure will be used in "Fusion" along with existing modes of authentication such as fingerprints, iris and OTP (one-time-password). Also, UIDAI believes that as face photos of Aadhaar holders are already in the UIDAI database, there will be no need to capture new photos again. On Monday, the UIDAI said many people were facing difficulties in using fingerprint or iris authentication.

In a circular, UIDAI said "Face authentication provides an additional option for AUAs (Authentication User Agencies) to ensure that inclusive authentication is offered to all residents".

The UIDAI has already captured the face photo during enrollment. "While Aadhaar Authentication API had the technical provision for sending photo of the face, this option is now not enabled within CIDR [Central Identities Database Repository]", the circular states. This means that the data already captured serves the objective, and the checks are also going to pose no problem, the UIDAI circular states, because "Camera is now pervasively available on laptops and mobiles making the face capture easily feasible for AUAs without needing any additional hardware".

The agency also said that it will work with biometric device providers to integrate face modality into the certified registered devices and may also provide standalone Registered Device (RD) service as required by the ecosystem. UIDAI hasn't elaborated on what the "liveness detection" feature would entail. "Service to be launched by 1 July 2018", read a tweet from the official Twitter handle of CEO of UIDAI. Besides Virtual ID, UIDAI has also introduced TOTP (or temporary OTP) that can be generated from the mAadhaar app to authenticate without having to wait for an OTP SMS. Apart from that, it has in place a "biometric lock" as an additional layer of protection against outside intrusions or breach. It will not be possible to derive Aadhaar number from VID.

A registered mobile number is essential to avail this service.
