PEC alumnus Col (Retd.) Sanjeev Kaul (1978; Civil) creates National-Cum- International level Identification System- Dynamic Identification (DID) - ‘Chanakya Chakra’




Col (Retd.)Sanjeev Kaul, who is a Security Technologist and author of six books , has researched over a decade & created a technology keeping Indian conditions in mind, to help secure the country technologically. He has improved upon already existing technologies & developed Dynamic Identification System(DID) .

Col. Kaul's ‘ideated and research platform’ would be a dynamic identification system carrying out identification as well as verification simultaneously without any human interference. The device is basically a compatible hardware machine- Palmetrix. Col Kaul has given a befitting name- ‘Chanakya Chakra’ to his innovative project, which once implemented, will be a National-International Interface based on Dynamic Identification System called DID.

Inspired by the ‘Palm Vein Recognition Authentication Technology’ developed by Fujitsu, Japan more than a decade ago and ‘Direct Server Authentication and Verification’ mode, this innovative system of identification has its working based on an individual’s pattern of veins established before birth. It was introduced in India in the year 2008 but is not being used extensively except for marking attendance in a limited mode.

"As no two individuals in the world share a palm vein pattern, even the identical twins differ, the use of this technology to create an interface is the most credible method of securing an individual’s identity. It is unlike other static identifications like UID and has a different dynamism in its system, that is most needed at national level now with all round development and growth. The implementation of the same would take nearly two to three years in a country like India." Said Col Kaul.
