The OSIA global qualification program

Supporting openness & interoperability in identity

This program was launched by Secure Identity Alliance. OSIA is an open standard set of interfaces (APIs) that enables seamless connectivity between building blocks of the identity management ecosystem – independent of technology, solution architecture or vendor. The qualification program is working to enhance the interoperability of identity management systems, support identity solution development and address government requirements for OSIA compliance.

The OSIA global qualification program aims to support the growing number of government bodies that want to introduce an OSIA qualification as a solution pre-requisite during their tendering process. It is doing this by enabling the government-industry collaboration needed to build open, innovative and future-proofed national identity systems.
