BharOS is a new Android fork with a focus on security developed in India

-


Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Madras just recently held a conference and announced BharOS – a new mobile operating system focused on privacy and security. The OS is developed by JandK Operations Private Limited (JandKops), which is a Section 8 (not-for-profit) Company established by IIT Madras. BharOS is basically a really clean fork of AOSP that offers various security and privacy features.

BharOS is a new Android fork with a focus on security

For instance, there are no default apps pre-loaded in the OS. This allows users to carefully choose only the apps they need and trust. BharOS also provides access to a private app store service called PASS. Apparently, it is populated with hand-picked apps that have been verified to comply with businesses’ privacy and security needs.

That’s precisely the target audience for the OS. It will be provided to businesses and organizations with specific security requirements and sensitive information. Apparently, BharOS will get its own native over-the-air updates as well. Though, it is not clear which version of the Android core it is currently based on.

Prof. V. Kamakoti, Director of IIT Madras, had this to say about the software project:

BharOS Service is a Mobile Operating System built on a foundation of trust, with a focus on providing users more freedom, control, and flexibility to choose and use only the apps that fit their needs. This innovative system promises to revolutionize the way users think about security and privacy on their mobile devices.
