Privacy and Security in Aadhaar
Shaurya Shekhar,  Vasantha W B
The Aadhaar project of the Government of India is the most ambitious program in the world aimed at issuing unique 12 digit numbers to every Indian as well as recording their biometrics for authentication services. A data leak would be potentially disastrous and would constitute a major breach of privacy as well. Such a leak can take place at the application level, network level and the storage level. Data pertaining to the number of data breaches in the past decade have been analyzed to emphasize the importance of a secure ecosystem for such an ambitious project. A new methodology has also been studied which will help in heightening the security of the Aadhaar ecosystem and safeguarding the privacy of the people better.
