News: Recently, the MeitY has launched the Indian Web Browser Development Challenge (IWBDC), inviting developers to create an Indigenous Indian Web Browser for global use.

What is IWBDC?
• The Indian Web Browser Development Challenge (IWBDC) is a contest that invites technology enthusiasts, innovators, and developers from all over India to create a native web browser with advanced features and enhanced security.
• The challenge is a collaborative effort of MeitY, the Controller of Certifying Authorities (CCA), and the Centre for Development of Advanced Computing (C-DAC) Bangalore

What is the main objective?
• The main objective of the challenge is to develop a web browser that has its own trust store with an inbuilt CCA India root certificate, which verifies the authenticity of websites, software, and digital signatures within the country’s online ecosystem.
• The browser should also have cutting-edge functionalities, robust security, data privacy, accessibility, and user-friendliness. Moreover, the browser should enable digital signing of documents using a crypto token, which would enhance secure transactions and digital interactions.
• The challenge consists of three rounds - ideation, shortlisting, and final round. The participants can be individuals or groups who can submit their innovative browser ideas through the challenge website.
