In the Aadhaar-enabled Payment System, the Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) has added a new security layer (AEPS).
The feature, known as "liveliness" of fingerprints, is intended to prevent the use of fake fingerprints to fraudulently withdraw money through AePS, according to a senior government official. "It's like a software update." "We remotely upgraded all active devices and implemented changes that will check whether the fingerprint being used belongs to a living person or not," the official explained. This was implemented in response to reports of AEPS misuse.
