eSignet is envisioned as a thin add-on system to any existing digital ID solution to bring in additional capabilities and enhance functionalities.
Do take a moment to watch the video below, which provides valuable information about eSignet and the range of features it offers!
Now, let us understand the key objectives of eSignet:
Enhancing authentication methods
It implements OpenID Connect flows, which helps the relying party perform quick and easy integrations using pre-existing libraries for user verification.
The system supports only the secure options in OpenID Connect, like authorization code flow to ensure the resident data is handled securely.
It is integrated with SBI (Secure Biometric Interface) to facilitate secure biometric collection for biometric-based user verification.
The system supports multiple authentication factors, like OTP, biometrics, etc., to be inclusive for all people.
All integrations to the ID system are taken as a runtime plug-able library to allow the reuse of official container images that help with easier upgrades.
Since this is designed especially for country-scale resident verification, eSignet does not support additional features like role management, session management, etc.
At eSignet, our core goals are to prioritize inclusion and accessibility. We place a strong emphasis on user privacy and data protection. Our platform, eSignet, is designed to enhance user convenience by providing various options and accommodating flexibility in the realm of identity verification.
One ID: Gain access to multiple services with ease. Users can log in to integrated government and private sector services using a single identity credential.
Mandatory User Consent: Before allowing access to personal information, we require users to provide explicit consent. Our platform incorporates a built-in consent flow.
Multiple modes of authentication: We offer various methods for identity verification to accommodate individual preferences.
Credential protection: We ensure that login credentials are not shared with relying parties. The login process takes place exclusively on the eSignet platform.
Go digital quickly
Fast and secure digital verification across services.
Ability to verify residents with the same level of assurance as during registration (OTP, Biometric, Cryptographic key).
Empower the government to offer digital verification and e-KYC as a service, enabling improved access to financial inclusion.
Easy integration with relying parties, as we follow standard-based protocols, reducing time to market.
Narrow and bridge the digital divide by enabling multiple modes of verification.
