India airport to use Aadhaar-linked biometric entry

An airport in major Indian city Bangalore plans to use entry devices linked to the country’s biometrics-backed identity database, Aadhaar. Bangalore International Airport is testing the feasibility of the concept with technology vendors Sarfan of France and Vision Box of Portugal, reports the Economic Times. “The process of manual verification of identity is a security concern and a pain point for the consumer. We want to digitize and automate the process to make the entire experience memorable and hassle-free,” said Hari Marar, President, Airport Operations, BIAL, the operator of Bengaluru’s Kempegowda International Airport. “The process should be as simple as waving my hand to get entry into the airport.”
