US inspired by Aadhaar: Lawmakers believe biometrics better option than social security number 19.5.2018 DNA: Popular News
Amid reports of massive breach of social security numbers along with identity theft, US lawmakers, encouraged by India's Aadhaar, explored the possibility of biometrics as an option, but privacy issues prevented experts from arriving at a consensus. In the US, a Social Security Number (SSN) is a nine-digit number issued to American citizens, permanent residents and temporary working residents. "Congress must not replace the SSN with a national biometric identifier. This would be a very bad idea," Samuel Lester, Consumer Privacy Counsel, Electronic Privacy Information Center told lawmakers during a Congressional hearing on future of social security numbers. This approach, he said, would pose serious privacy and security risks. "These risks would only be compounded if the US were to move towards a national biometric identifier," Lester said. Paul Rosenzweig, senior fellow, R Street Institute tended to disagree. "It really is a difference between a centralised database in a distributed database. Biometrics ...

Plea in HC raises concerns over security of Aadhaar data 18.5.2018 General News
A fresh plea was today moved in the Delhi High Court raising concerns about Aadhaar data security and privacy of individuals, in the wake of several reported leaks of personal information of people from the Unique Identification Authority of India's (UIDAI) database. The matter, seeking directions to the Centre to either allow people to opt out of the system or deletion of the entire existing UIDAI data in view of the security breaches, came up before a bench of Justices Sanjiv Khanna and Chander Shekhar which declined to hear it now as the Supreme Court was dealing with the Aadhaar issue. The high court listed it for hearing in August. The petitioner, Kerala-based lawyer Shamnad Basheer, has alleged in his plea that there were several breaches of the Aadhaar system leading to leakage of personal information of individuals since January this year and contended that UIDAI and the Centre were liable to compensate people whose data was compromised.
