MOSIP (Modular Open-Source Identification Platform)

Website: mosip.io

MOSIP was incubated at IIIT-Bangalore as a global digital public good. The platform’s modular architecture, easy configuration, and customization abilities, enables countries the flexibility to build their foundational digital ID systems in a cost-effective manner. MOSIP was built on a strong bedrock of principles for security and privacy. The use of open standards and open-source code ensures that MOSIP is agnostic to specific applications, programming languages, and platforms, and actively works towards avoiding vendor lock-in. MOSIP is funded by the Bill & Melinda Gates’ Foundation, Tata Trust, Omidyar Networks, and NORAD.
