Morpho (Safran), world leader in security and identity solutions, announced today that it will power the upcoming Aadhaar Hackathon by furnishing a biometric sensor to develop applications around biometric authentification.

The aim of the event is to encourage and promote the development of applications that utilize the open Aadhaar application program interfaces (APIs). The online Hackathon is open to participants across India and will require them to take an online entry test to ensure they meet minimum eligibility criterion. The event will see close to 4.500 participants indulge in a non-stop 2 day coding marathon. On June 6-7 2015, developers will build products under any of the following categories: Government Benefits, Financial Services (banking, insurance, and brokerage), Payments, Healthcare, Fast Moving Consumer Goods (FMCG), and Online + Offline (O2O).

Aadhaar APIs such as Biometric Authentication, Biometric eKYC, Demographic Authentication, OTP (One-time password) Authentication and OTP eKYC will be exposed to all developers. Both Biometric Authentication and Biometric eKYC require approved biometric sensors for which the participants are free to procure their own devices (UIDAI approved). USB- based biometric sensors are being made available by Morpho with their SDK for Android and Windows at the cost of Rs.3000. Participants can purchase these online at thebiovault.com

The Aadhaar Hackathon will be administered via the HackerEarth Sprint, a unique tool developed by HackerEarth for conducting large-scale online Hackathons. All applications will be required to prove the successful use of the Aadhaar APIs and will be judged automatically for quality of code and added value of the application. A team of experts will judge the top 5 applications in each category and pick one winner from each category on 8th June.

“The Online Aadhaar Hackathon will provide a platform to developers in India to build applications around the Aadhaar architecture. Such applications will not only help the uptake of Aadhaar authentication, but also lead to a faster and smarter delivery of payments and trusted services,” said Sanjeev Shriya, SVP India at Morpho, and Managing Director, Smart Chip Limited.

The Indian government first unveiled the colossal, one-of-a-kind Aadhaar project in September 2009 as a way of raising working and living standards and offering all residents a unique, undisputable identity. Morpho (morpho.com) began issuing Aadhaar numbers in August 2010. Today, with almost 1 million applications processed daily, over 800 million identity numbers have been issued.
