- e-Signet allows easy login to any of the government services using a single credential (as it uses the existing ID repository)
- Passwordless login using the supported authentication factors
- This release focuses on the following two authentication factors:
- With e-Signet version 1.0, mobile wallet based authentication can be used to scan a QR code and complete the authentication based on the credential already activated for online login. It also performs a local face authentication before using the activated credential.
OpenIDbeing a standard, we get a lot of Client libraries for intergrations. Hence, avoid custom code building for integration.
Key highlights of this feature are:
- Storage of user consent against the requested claims and scopes in the database.
- If the consent is already provided, the consent screen is bypassed when the user logs in using e-Signet (v1.1.0).
- Recapture consent in case of changes in requested claims or scopes.
- Since the relying party redirects to the e-Signet page, inclusion of new authentication factor can be introduced without any changes to the integration from the relying party end.
- As the user enters the ID directly on the e-Signet page, the relying party does not have to store the ID which could otherwise be used for profiling incase of data leaks.
- In our login flows, we collect the user's consent before sharing their private information to the relying party. The user therefore has the privilege for selective sharing of data.
- We support the relying party to specify an assurance level based on the usecase of the relying party.
With e-Signet version 1.0, the OTP-based authentication is now secured with captcha.
In version 1.0, the e-Signet UI supports multiple languages. By default, e-Signet comes with the following language bundles:
Additionally, it can be customized to support other languages as per a country's requirement.
- e-Signet is also verified for RTL (right-to-left) support.
