UIDAI introduces 2-tier security to shield Aadhaar data


Neighbourhood News Desk/Avi Arya: Due to the reports of an alleged breach of the Aadhaar database published in a newspaper last week, the Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) has rolled out a new two-tier security process that will come into effect from June 1.

In order to eliminate the need to share and store Aadhaar numbers, UIDAI has introduced the concept of a virtual ID where an Aadhaar holder can use in lieu of his/her Aadhaar number at the time of authentication, besides sharing of ‘limited KYC’ with certain agencies.
