[Work done from 18th August to 31st August 2008]
With in last two weeks we involved with lots of project related works, including prototype development of web service, writing design document and discussing new project ideas. Last two weeks we had come up with some new ideas about the eID system, so we had several project meeting with in last two weeks and we discussed about those new features proposed for eID system.
Prototype development was become very interesting and innovative matter. First I started the development of the web service, which handles the online authentication and the Identity. At there, my ambition was developing web service with fundamental features. While developing prototype we identified lots of difficulties which can occurred using web service alone. Finally we decided to implement the online authentication system with a web service and a Servlet container.
Using USB memory stick as the eID token may lead system to very serious privacy issues. Because USB memory stick haven’t any processing power and we have to take the do the all the operations in the PC, which we have plugged the eID card. During that time privacy data of the cardholder can be used for malicious activities. So we decided to use USB smart card as eID card which has processing power. Also we discussed about implementing Anonymous credentials concept to solve the privacy issues.
We started the writing design document also, we discussed about the structure of the document and we divided the report into four main parts and started the documentations.
