- Know more and get your national single sign on enabled

Single Citizen Login across the system - Provide secure and simple access to various public services - Indian national Single Sign On

MeriPehchaan – National Single Sign-On (NSSO)  is a very forward-looking project and this is a revolutionary approach by the Government of India in the Digital Journey.  Many corporate companies are still in the process of implementing SSO (Single Sign-On) however in India the country is moving all e-services to the NSSO Platform. 

This is also a very logical approach as Government moves more and more services online, and the hassles in remembering the password and user id get complicated.  
Making NSSO an open platform with an API will enable fast adoption of the platform and the services.  

MeriPehchaan – National Single Sign-On (NSSO) is a user authentication service in which a single set of credentials provide access to multiple online applications or services. This offers major benefits for both users and application administrators.

For users, it eliminates the need to repeatedly prove their identities to different applications and hold different credentials for each application and also helps identify the real applications as opposed to fake ones.

To the application owner, it helps save time, effort, and cost to build the authentication systems for every service independently.
