Moving Indian population to the clouds
Plot: Government of India is planning to develop a UID card and number system with population count which has to be held on 2012. This will also collect left hand thumb impression or scanned picture of eye which will be printed on the card.
Unique Identification (UID) :
UID is a unique numbering system for each individual in India for identification purpose. The number will have 16 digits which may include alphanumerical. The UID card will have name, permanent address, blood group information printed besides the photograph of the individual. Government is planning to include either left hand thumb impression or scanned picture of eye in the UID card. UID card will be accepted as official proof of information in all officials. After the complete implementation of the system, people who don’t own a UID will not be treated as an Indian citizen. So it is mandatory for all Indians to provide accurate information to the UID agency.
My idea of National Security System (NSS) :
I love my country and am willing to help India and it’s people for the best of it’s privacy, peace and wealthy living conditions. I came across the news report regarding UID and thus made a study on the system. Below is my idea of utilizing the UID as a national security system for individuals in India. The system works in a transparent way of collecting and delivering personal data but still keep the privacy. The data will be made available for public via a UID official website and verification can be processed by an open API free of cost.
This is a card which will have unique UID number, full name and address, DOB, blood group, left hand thumb impression of the person and a colored passport size photograph printed on it.
UID website :
The advantage of UID system is the UID website which runs on highly secured cloud computing based data centers. The website will have function for retrieving individual’s details by entering the UID.
The UID open api system will allow other websites to retrieve personal data through a secure api which have to be made mandatory for all registrations through Internet in India. This helps IT security by not giving people an option to register anonymously in social media or other websites like of email providers. This helps to avoid fake email threatening and such IT crimes.
National security measure :
As the UID open api extends IT security, UID also enables more security and helps Government. As UID includes the thumb impression of everyone in India, security agency can upload thumb impressions collected from any issued (break in or such ) area and match it with whole UID system to find the person. Also, we have security cameras around the country already. Most of them are useless as even we got their picture we can not trace them by using the footage recorded in those cameras. UID system enables face detection system, where agency can upload stills of the victim and it detects the person and search in the UID database. All these measures a secure India.
Extended UID :
Once the UID system is completely established all around the country, the possibilities of using the UID system is highly extensive.
UID profile :
Individuals can log in to UID website and modify their latest address and such details by entering their UID and secure secret code.
UID based registrations :
No need of filling the whole details every time signup for a service. Just enter the UID, the system will collect your data.
UID based postal services :
No need to enter the complete address o the envelops just enter UID and extended address code. The postal system will collect current address of the person and send it to the correct address.
