Overview#Modular Open Source Identity Platform (MOSIP) is a modular and Open Source identity platform that helps user organisations such as Governments implement a digital, foundational ID in a cost effective way, while embracing the best practices of scalability, security and privacy
A country’s identification system is the backbone for effective delivery of public and private services. Governments are exploring the development of multipurpose foundational ID systems, in which individuals receive a unique identifier from the government that they can use for identity assertion and verification. The foundational ID can then be used to access a wide variety of government and private services.
As countries consider how best to build foundational ID systems, they face several policy and technological choices. Once these choices are made, countries often grapple with some common implementation challenges. These include ensuring uniqueness in the system, interoperability, privacy by design reaching scale, avoiding vendor lock-in and maintaining affordability.
