Daon Picked to Contribute to World’s Largest ID Program, Tom Grissen Comments

Daon was selected by India to provide software for the country’s identity management.

According to the firm, “Daon’s software has been selected for use in India’s Unique ID (UID), the world’s largest identity program. The program, branded as Aadhaar, will eventually encompass 1.2 billion residents and the UID will become the single source of identity verification throughout the country.”

“We are very pleased to be part of this important and history-making venture, ” Daon CEO Tom Grissen said. “When you combine the population size, the rapid pace of deployment and the multimodal aspect of the program, you have a truly unique requirement. With scalability, risk mitigation and multimodal enrollment as key factors, the UID presents the ideal environment for Daon. Our partners recognized the value of Daon’s COTS products early in the procurement process and we are gratified to have played an important role in securing this business.”
