There is nothing surprising. The very same method of finger print faking was demonstrated ere the Parliamentary Standing Committee that studied #Aadhar in 2011. @UIDAI knew this is possible. Biometrics is the least secure password of all (1/n)
Nobody with minimum understanding of / concern about security or privacy would plan a project like this.
and all those in power who decided to implement such a dangerous project like #Aadhaar , without any study or cost benfit analysis should be held accountable.
A project of this magnitude that infringe on various fundamental rights including privacy, right to equality, right to life etc was implemented unconstitutionaly without any legilation or approval from #Parliament
It was implemented by an executive order of the planning Commission. Planning commission to my knowledge is an advisory body. Havent heard of it being an implementing agency of any project before.
Obviously, planning commission had no infrastructure or manpower or mechanism to implement such massive project. So they outsourced it all to private agancies with know knowledge or expertise or accountability.
Now they have blacklisted at least 50,000 such agencies. Nobody knows how many fake enrolments were done by these agencies. There is no way to ascertain. The entire #Aadhaar database is unaudited. No mechanism to check the veracity of info.
The technology-biometrics, is an inherently fallible technology. It is probablistic. Fundamental rights and security of the country is left to permutations and combinations of a half baked system of algorithms over which we have no control
Fingerprints and iris system can be duped very easily. And once the data is lost, it is lost forever. None can change their Fingerprint and iris like email-passwords or debit card PIN.
The only way out is to #DestroyTheAadhaar
Otherwise it will render even the Crime Investigation mechanism invalid, with all criminals implanting innocent people's biometrics all around the crime-scene.
