Inji - A new possibility


It brings me immense pleasure to see our partners at the ID4Africa event. It’s fabulous to see the diversity and innovation that our partners have created above the platform. I would like to take this opportunity to appreciate all our partners’ hard work and contributions.

In ID4Africa we demonstrated an exciting solution called Inji (Mobile ID) to our adopters. The solution ( GitHub - mosip/inji ) is a demo version of what’s possible to be built above MOSIP. The exciting features that the solution offers are

  • Issuance of the digital id into Inji.
  • Support for family members on a single phone.
  • Support for sharing ID from one phone to another using BLE.
  • Sharing ID to an app on the same phone.
  • Consent.
  • Security and protection of the ID at storage and in transit.
  • QR code-based sharing*
  • Local biometric verification*
  • USSD channel for ID Sharing*

*Not demoable yet.

The adopters are excited about the new possibilities that Inji could offer. While the demo went great, We do have a set of items that we have to collectively address as a community. I am listing down the items that need standardization and interoperability. Any help on the same is appreciated.

  • Security & Compliance of the wallet (Cloud & Mobile).
  • The standard for issuance of the ID to the wallet.
  • The standard for sharing the ID to another app or to another device.
  • The standard for communication with biometric verification SDK’s (local match)

Please reply back to this thread in case you find this opportunity exciting and would like to work with us to create these standards.
