NIC raises concern over privacy of UIDAI database


The newly established UIDAI would be hosting information of all residents of the country on a private data centre, which NIC believes raises concern about privacy and security, official sources said.

In a letter dated November 6  NIC writes, "It has been proposed to hire the data centre services for PoC (proof-of-concept) and prototype on rental basis. It is presumed that the data related to UID will be hosted in a government Data Centre. If not, the issues related to privacy and security with respect to UID data may require to be taken into consideration."

UIDAI replied that hosting the data on a private network "does not necessarily lead to violation of privacy and security.
