MOSIP: Inclusive Open-Source Digital ID



  Sep 20, 2023

MOSIP - Simplified



MOSIP (Modular Open Source Identity Platform) is an open-source digital identity system developed by the International Institute of Information Technology-Bangalore (IIIT-B).
It provides countries with a foundational digital identity infrastructure similar to India's Aadhaar.

Benefits of MOSIP:

Inclusivity: MOSIP allows governments to design inclusive services tailored to their citizens' needs, considering technological and information challenges.
 
Customization: It offers flexibility for governments to choose the features they need. For some, authentication is a priority, while others focus on identity creation.
 
Open Source: All MOSIP code, documentation, and resources are open source, making it accessible to countries looking to implement digital identity systems.
 
Philanthropic Support: MOSIP has received support from organizations like the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, Tata Trusts, and Omidyar Network due to its potential to drive economic transformation and inclusive growth.
 
International Adoption: Around 11 countries, including the Philippines, Morocco, Sri Lanka, Uganda, and Ethiopia, are adopting MOSIP to create their own digital identity systems.
 
Digital Public Infrastructure (DPI): MOSIP is a crucial component of DPI, supporting sustainable development goals and digital transformation.
 
Market Growth: The global digital identification solutions (DIS) market is expected to grow significantly, making MOSIP's open-source approach attractive.
 
In essence, MOSIP empowers countries to build their digital identity systems, promoting inclusivity, customization, and open-source collaboration while addressing their unique needs and challenges.
