The government has reportedly formed five working groups to study and formulate guidelines for anonymisation of data, zero trust architecture, IoT devices, mobile device security and digital education. These working groups have been set up under the ministry of electronics and information technology and will look to develop guidelines and frameworks for effective and efficient implementation of e-governance projects of ministries and government departments.

Additionally, existing guidelines for mobile security and online learning systems will be revised to reflect advancements in technology.

The Ministry of Information Technology is reportedly actively working alongside all relevant ministries for the project. According to ministry officials, the idea of proactive approach ensures they stay ahead of potential challenges by anticipating them and developing solutions before they arise.

Reports on data anonymization and mobile security guidelines are meanwhile undergoing review, while the work continues on crafting guidelines for zero-trust architecture, online exams, and IoT devices. These efforts will ultimately contribute to an updated India Digital System Architecture, a project whose initial draft was released in 2022 for public feedback.

Depending on the suggestions of the working groups, the government is likely to retain the function of designing, developing and managing core blocks of these technologies and sectors, while allowing the development of apps and services on top of them. VAR India
