Biometric Identity Management For Indian Government

Daon : 02 August, 2010  (Application Story)
Daon will supply identity management software to India as part of the country's Unique ID program for streamlining the delivery of services to local residents
India has joined a growing number of countries around the world who have chosen Daon software for identity management. Daon's software has been selected for use in India's Unique ID (UID), the world's largest identity program. The program, branded as Aadhaar, will eventually encompass 1.2 billion residents and the UID will become the single source of identity verification throughout the country.

In India, an inability to prove identity is one of the biggest barriers preventing citizens from accessing benefits and subsidies. The Unique ID will allow citizens to access critical programs, while decreasing tax leakages, increasing revenue and significantly bringing down transaction costs as it transforms the delivery of social welfare programs.

Daon provides a centralized platform and client biometric infrastructure for a variety of uses including employee credentialing, government benefits programs, trusted identity services, border management, national ID, airport e-gate systems and immigration control. Daon's innovative Commercial Off the Shelf (COTS) software, industry recognized expertise and large scale program experience enables the delivery of solutions that reduce risk, schedule and cost. On the India program, Daon is responsible for the fusion-based ABIS solution that incorporates finger, iris and face modalities.

Commenting on this win, Daon's CEO, Tom Grissen said, "We are very pleased to be part of this important and history-making venture. When you combine the population size, the rapid pace of deployment and the multimodal aspect of the program, you have a truly unique requirement. With scalability, risk mitigation and multimodal enrollment as key factors, the UID presents the ideal environment for Daon. Our partners recognized the value of Daon's COTS products early in the procurement process and we are gratified to have played an important role in securing this business."
