Demo Application for Aadhaar Authentication and electronic Know Your Customer (e-KYC)
The demo application is designed to include all the offerings of Aadhaar Authentication which includes Biometric, OTP and Demographic information. Aadhaar authentication is the process wherein Aadhaar number, along with other attributes (demographic/biometrics/OTP) is submitted to UIDAI's Central Identities Data Repository (CIDR) for verification; the CIDR verifies whether the data submitted matches the data available in CIDR and responds with a “Yes/No”. No personal identity information is returned as part of the response. The purpose of Authentication is to enable residents to prove their identity and for service providers to confirm that the residents are ‘who they say they are' in order to supply services and give access to benefits. E-KYC - The Aadhaar e-KYC service provides an instant, electronic, non-repudiable proof of identity and proof of address along with date of bi rth and gender. In addition, it also provides the resident’s mobile number and email address to the service provider, which helps further streamline the process of service delivery. E-KYC may be performed at an agent location using biometric authentication, as well as remotely using an OTP on a website or mobile connection.
