The Samsung India Identity SDK enables Independent Software Vendors (ISVs) to develop applications for India market that can take advantage of the AADHAAR based iris authentication. This SDK enables ISVs to take advantage of the IR camera capability available in the supported Samsung devices.
The Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) has provided a unique identifier called the AADHAAR number for every resident of India. AADHAAR is a biometric database that includes an iris scan, digital fingerprints, a digital photo, and text-based data for every resident of India. Taking advantage of this new AADHAAR Identity Platform, Samsung now provides a biometric-based authentication solution.

How it works
The Samsung India Identity SDK provides a set of APIs that uses iris data, which can be captured and encrypted in a format that conforms to the UIDAI specifications. Your apps can make use of the encrypted iris data to authenticate the user, or to get the e-KYC data from the AADHAAR server.
