Hi all,

Nandan Nilekani is to start the process of issuing every Indian
citizen an identity card.
But are the platform/readers and so on based on open source standards,
such that you
or I can verify that it doesn't have flaws or hidden backdoors which
can be misused?

I couldn't find anything on Google. Anyone has any ideas?

Thanks,
Nikhil
