MOSIP enhances digital ID platform features, announces webinar
Modular open-source platform for biometrics-backed digital identity, MOSIP, will be offering a detailed explanation of some of the new and enhanced features of its 1.1.3 software release in a virtual event next month.
According to an announcement on the digital ID platform’s website, a webinar slated for 7:30 pm IST on February 10 will see experts furnish attendees with information about these enhanced features as well as illustrate their tangible benefits through real use cases.
The outfit gave a foretaste of what is expected at the webinar, which, it said, is the result of “significant architectural and design enhancements” incorporated into their work over time, making their platform more adoptable across an array of ID system needs.
MOSIP said the new release is, among other things, cloud-ready with objectstore as data store; has data integration and enrichment; verifiable credentials, enhanced caching; intuitive dashboards; and a web hook event access option.
The new features, functionalities, increased case uses and benefits, MOSIP added, will make deployment, customization, administration and monitoring of their software a lot much easier for countries working to establish digital ID systems around the world.
The organizers say registration for the online event is ongoing and have urged stakeholders to sign up to be part of their journey of continuously making available customized, integrated and trustworthy solutions to countries that are looking to engage foundational biometric ID projects.
Upon request from attendees, MOSIP said it could go a little deeper into the technological aspects of the novelties during the webinar.
The February 10 event is part of a regular series of MOSIP webinars that bring together digital ID and tech experts to throw light on and create a platform for dialogue, networking and exchanges around issues of digital ID adaption and implementation, and related concerns.
The Information Technology, Bangalore (IIIT-B) and the Norwegian Agency for Development Cooperation (Norad) formed a partnership to further develop the digital ID capabilities of MOSIP last year.
