The Indian government is all set to resurrect their own operating system which is named Bharat Operating System Solutions or BOSS.
According to a report by DNA, it has been launched to overcome the vulnerabilities that exist in government cyberspace which lead to frequent hacking attempts by Chinese hackers and Indian group of hackers.
It is actually a “LBS certified” Linux distribution, which means that the software has been certified by the Linux Foundation for compliance with the Linux Standard Base standard.
It’s being claimed that fresh codes have been written for this OS, and is being given to department of electronics and information technology (DEITY) to make it foolproof and ready to use for the ministry.
In future, the government plans to collaborate with industry giants to develop it further to create an open source OS with hardware and network systems that are BOSS friendly.
