Identifier (VID) in a Virtual Environment
Can an agency store VID? Open or Close Can a company keep VID on file? Open or Close

No Aadhaar number holders can change their VID at any time, so there's no point in storing VID. Databases and logs should never contain VID, as should agencies.

Can anyone else generate VID for me? Open or Close Is there anyone who can make VIDs for me? OpenClose

If you have an Aadhaar number, only the AUA or KUA can make a VID for you.

Will re-generation of VID lead to the same VID or a different VID? Open or Close When VID is regenerated, does it produce the same VID or a new VID? Open | Closed

When an Aadhaar holder requests regeneration after their VID has expired for the minimum validity period (currently 1 calendar day), a new VID will be generated and the old VID will be disabled. If a resident requests their VID, the Aadhaar holder will be sent their most recently used VID.

In case of VID, do I need to provide consent for authentication? Open or Close Do I need to give permission for authentication if I use a VID? Open or Closed

If you're using a verification identifier (VID) system, you'll need the permission of the owner of an Aadhaar Aadhaar number holders must be informed of the authentication's purpose and give their consent before the agency can proceed with the process.

What is Virtual ID (VID)? Open or Close When should I use an open or closed Virtual ID (VID)?

The Virtual Identification (VID) Number is a 16-digit random number that is associated with the permanent Aadhaar number. When performing authentication or electronic Know Your Customer (e-KYC) services, a VID can be used instead of an Aadhaar number. A VID can be used for authentication in the same way that an Aadhaar number would. The Aadhaar number cannot be calculated from the VID.

Can VID be used for OTP or biometrics or demographics authentication? Open or Close Can demographic, biometric, or one-time-password (OTP) authentication be performed using VID?

Yes When interacting with the Authentication API, a VID can be used in place of an Aadhaar number. To facilitate authentication, many organizations have committed to updating their Aadhaar authentication application to accept VID by May 31, 2019.

How does a resident obtain VID? Open or Close How does a local resident open or close a VID account?

The only person who can create a VID is the owner of an Aadhaar number. UIDAI has established a minimum validity period for VIDs, which is currently 1 calendar day (i.e., they can replace it by generating a new VID after this time has elapsed). e After midnight on the next day, a new VID will be created. Only one VID can be associated with a given Aadhaar number at any given time. UIDAI will give those with an Aadhaar number multiple ways to create a VID, retrieve a forgotten VID, or get a new VID issued. UIDAI will provide these choices through the resident portal, eAadhaar download, Aadhaar Enrolment center, mAadhaar mobile application, etc. UIDAI's resident portal currently supports VID generation. Residents will have their VID sent to their registered mobile number via SMS whenever it is needed.

Sending a text message to the Aadhaar support number, 1947, will also generate a VID. Sending "GVIDLast 4 digits of Aadhaar Number" via the resident's registered mobile number to 1947 is required.

What if an Aadhaar number holder forgets VID? Can he/she obtain again? Open or Close Can an Aadhaar cardholder re-obtain a VID if they lose it?

UIDAI will, indeed, offer a variety of options for creating and retrieving VIDs. The UIDAI resident portal, the eAadhaar website, the Aadhaar Enrollment Centre, the mAadhaar mobile app, and other channels will all offer these choices. At this time, residents can use the UIDAI portal to generate VIDs. A resident's VID number will be sent to their registered mobile number via text message whenever it is needed.

Sending an SMS to the Aadhaar support number 1947 will also retrieve your VID. The resident must use their registered mobile number to send the text "RVIDLast 4 digits of Aadhaar Number" to the number 1947.

What are the benefits of Hashing? Open or Close Open or Closed: What are the Benefits of Hashing?

Hashing is most commonly used to check two files for equality. The owner will be able to tell at a glance whether or not two files are different based on their hash values, even without opening them and comparing every single word.

In file backup programs like SyncBack, hashing is used to ensure that no data has been corrupted during the transfer process. By comparing the hash values of the source and destination files, the user can check that the transferred file is in good condition. If they match, the transferred file is an exact replica of the original.

A virtual drive container file is an example of an encrypted file that may be created with the intention of never changing the file size or the last modification date and time. It would be impossible to tell at a glance if two similar files were different, but the hash values would easily tell the difference.

What is UIDAI Secure QR Code? How QR Code enhance the security of e-Aadhaar? Open or Close Answer Wiki What is a UIDAI Secure QR Code, and how does it improve the safety of my e-Aadhaar?

The Aadhaar secure QR code can be found in the UIDAI e-Aadhaar letter. UIDAI has changed the QR code on e-Aadhaar so that it only contains the last four digits of the holder's Aadhaar number, along with their name, address, gender, date of birth, and photograph. A small QR Code containing only demographic information will be located on the front of the cutaway portion, and a larger QR Code containing both demographic information and a photo will be located on the top portion of the front and rear of the cutaway portion. Further, a UIDAI digital signature will be affixed to this data to make it even more secure and impossible to alter. UIDAI's Windows-based Custom client for PCs and Macs is required to read and verify the authenticity of the QR code's digital signature. Thus, any attempt at e-Aadhaar fraud can be easily uncovered with the aid of a QR code scanner.

What is Hashing? Open or Close Open or Closed Hashing: What Is It?

Hashing is an algorithm that takes a file and returns a value encoded as a string of bits. Blocks of information are what make up a file. Through a process called hashing, the original string is converted into a much shorter fixed-length value or key. One could think of the hash value as a shorthand for the contents of the file.

The avalanche effect is a characteristic of a good hashing algorithm in which the hash output shifts significantly or completely when only a single bit or byte of data within a file is modified. Any hash function that doesn't do this is thought to have insufficient randomization and is therefore vulnerable to attack.

As a rule, a hash is a series of hexadecimal digits. In addition, hashing is a one-way process; the original data can never be recovered by using it.

Hashes are typically a series of hexadecimal digits. Additionally, hashing is a one-way process; the original data can never be recovered by using it.

What is Aadhaar Paperless Offline e-KYC? Open or Close In other words, what is Aadhaar paperless offline e-KYC?

It is a safe, transferable document that anyone with an Aadhaar number can use to verify their identity in person.

A resident who wishes to make use of this service must first visit the UIDAI resident portal in order to create digitally signed Aadhaar details. Name, Address, Photo, Gender, Date of Birth, Registered Mobile Number hash, Registered Email Address hash, and Reference ID consisting of the last 4 digits of the Aadhaar Number followed by a time stamp will all be included in the digitally signed XML file containing the details. Without requiring them to collect or store Aadhaar numbers, it will allow service providers/Offline Verification Seeking Entity (OVSE) to use the Offline Aadhaar Verification facility.

How will service providers use Aadhaar Offline e-KYC? Open or Close To what extent will service providers utilize Aadhaar Offline e-KYC?

Offline e-KYC Verification with Aadhaar by Service Provider Process:

  • As soon as the service provider acquires the ZIP file, it extracts the XML file using the resident's supplied password (share code).
  • Name, Date of Birth, Gender, and Address information will all be included in the XML file. You can view the image with any HTML viewer or program thanks to its base 64 encoding. User information such as email address and phone number are hashed.
  • In order to validate the hash, the service provider must collect the resident's email address and mobile phone number and carry out the tasks listed below.

    Telephone Number While Mobile:

    To generate a hash, follow this formula: Sha256(Sha256(Mobile ShareCode))*number of times of last digit of Aadhaar Number

    Example :
    Contact number: 9800000002
    This is my Aadhaar number: 123412341234
    Password: ABC@123

Offline Aadhaar Data Verification Service

How this Aadhaar Offline Paperless eKYC document is different from the other identification documents produced offline by residents? Open or Close What sets this Aadhaar Offline Paperless eKYC document apart from the other forms of offline identification that residents produce?

Providing the service provider with a valid form of identification such as a PAN card, passport, etc. is usually sufficient for identity verification.

The verifier of documents must rely on the producer's word alone because no technological means exist to confirm the document's or information's veracity.

This allows the service provider to ensure the authenticity of the file and its demographic information during the offline verification process.
