Ajay Bhushan Pandey, CEO of the Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI), shared his authentication logs with the Supreme Court while making a presentation in front of them regarding concerns about information security raised by the petitioners on March 22.

The irony is, while he tried to assure both the Supreme Court and citizens of the country how safe and secure their information will be with Aadhaar, his own information including his physical activities were out in the open.

Cybersecurity analyst and software developer Anand Venkatanarayanan revealed on Twitter how going through six months worth authentication data of Pandey can show where the UIDAI CEO has been, how many bank accounts he has. Information about his transactions was also revealed.

The Logical Indian take

Aadhaar critics have always said that seeding one’s Aadhaar with their phone numbers and bank accounts can enable government to track citizens. The leak of UIDAI’s CEO only furthers this argument. It is of utmost importance that the government takes substantial measures to secure our data rather than hollow promises of privacy. As the second most populated country in the world, the repercussions of data leak of Indians is dangerous.
