New Delhi: The UIDAI has decided to enable face authentication for registration of Aadhaar in fusion mode on registered devices by July 1, 2018. Currently, UIDAI provides two modes of biometric authentication i.e. fingerprint authentication and iris authentication.

Here is a lowdown on the new feature:

- Face authentication will help those citizens who are not able to biometrically authenticate due to their worn out fingerprints, old age or hard work conditions.

- Face authentication shall be allowed only in fusion mode along with one more authentication factor combined with either fingerprint or iris to be able to successfully authenticate an Aadhaar number holder.

- Face Authentication shall also be allowed on need basis.

- To facilitate this authentication service, UIDAI will work with biometric device providers to integrate face modality into the certified registered devices and may also provide standalone registered device service as required by the system.

- UIDAI will provide Software Development Kits (SDKs)/Registered Device (RD) services in various operating systems which will have the ability to capture face image, check liveness, and create digitally signed and encrypted authentication input (PID block) as required.

- UIDAI will extend necessary support for enabling Face Authentication and would release necessary details for implementation by 1st March 2018.
