Virtual ID(VID) to Protect the Privacy of Your Aadhaar Details

Virtual ID(VID) to Protect the Privacy of Your Aadhaar Details

This 16-digit number can be provided by people for various services like railway counters, airlines, instead of revealing their Aadhaar number and confirm the person's birthday.

UIDAI will start issuing Virtual ID from March 01, 2018. However, the questions remain about how the Limited KYC will work and how the virtual Aadhaar IDs will be generated.

In its place, a random and temporary 16-digit Virtual ID number would be generated, which the consumer can use in place of Aadhaar with authorised telecom service providers.

The new proposed measures involve giving virtual identification for the ID holders, so that the actual Aadhaar numbers need not be shared by them to authenticate their identity.

A VID is a temporary 16-digit number which is mapped with the Aadhaar number.

As per a UIDAI official, it will take only 10 seconds to generate a new Virtual ID, and has described it as one of the strongest security mechanism ever introduced for Aadhaar. Later, the same was claimed to be false and it was claimed that the Aadhaar details are secure. At the agency-end, the Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) has introduced the concept of "Limited KYC" (Know Your Customer) which won't return Aadhaar number but would only provide an "agency specific unique UID token to eliminate agencies storing Aadhaar numbers while still enabling their own paperless KYC". The report debunked the stand of UIDAI and the government that its database can not be breached.

"Aadhaar commenced to enable RESIDENTS of India to access basic services thru an identity". 210 government published at least 13 crore Aadhaar numbers in the past and the risk of people having these numbers already is very high. During this period, the government has gone ahead with making Aadhaar a totalitarian and compulsory system.

A new Virtual ID can be now created for every Aadhaar card, which can be used whenever a 3rd party requires Aadhaar number for any verification or KYC process.

UIDAI yesterday introduced "Virtual ID" (VID) to safeguard Aadhaar cardholders' data. This will, in turn, reduce the collection of Aadhaar numbers by various agencies. Both Airtel and Airtel Payments Bank had come under fire after the Sunil Mittal-led firm allegedly opened accounts of its mobile phone subscribers without seeking their "informed consent", and LPG subsidies worth crores were deposited into them.

The deadline for this security layer is the same as that for VIDs, i.e. June 1.

While security of Aadhaar data has been a subject of debate ever since the idea was floated under the UPA government, repeated allegations of leaks has severely eroded public confidence. About 43% of the respondents said that access to Aadhaar data should be limited to verification of only name and address for e-KYC where it is mandatory.
