All countries need an identification system for effective delivery of public and private services. Governments are exploring the development of multipurpose foundational ID systems. Individuals receive a unique identifier from the government that can be used to access a variety of government and private services.
MOSIP (Modular Open Source Identity Platform) aims to do something similar to what Aadhar did to India. Many countries especially the smaller ones and not so technologically advanced may not have wherewithal to develop their own Aadhar. So MOSIP attempts to ensure they do not have to rediscover the wheel. It is an open platform that harnesses the power of open source.
MOSIP's open source platform ensures countries are no longer dependent on any vendor. The platform helps governments and other organizations implement a digital identity system in a cost effective way. Its modular architecture provides flexibility in implementing and configuring systems. Anchored at the International Institute of Information Technology, Bangalore (IIIT-B), MOSIP embraces the best practices of scalability, security and privacy.
So come become part of creating History and actually changing the world. Like Aadhar ensured some of the best architects came together to create something unthinkable, MOSIP also has seen coming together of some of the smartest architects with vast experience.
