5.2 Partner Policy Authentication [↑]

Authenticate and authorise Auth Partner- proxy implementation

The authentication service request should have a defined set of parameters. Please refer to data definition in Git for more details on required parameters.

The system then validates the following:

  1. Validates the digital signature in the certificate
  2. Validates the certificate
  3. Validates if the partnerID belongs to a registered partner
  4. The system also validates if the partner status is active
  5. Retrieves all the policies constituting the partnerID and partner api key
  6. Validates if the auth type specified in the request is one of the policies retrieved for the partner
  7. Validates if the time period between the current time stamp and the request time stamp is <= time period (n - admin config)
  8. Validates if the "authvalue" in the input parameter is same "authval" stored in the database for the mapped UIN and VID
  9. The system constructs the authentication response based on validation results and sets the authentication status as 'Y' only if the pinval matches.
  10. The system then integrates the response with the static token generated for the authentication request
  11. Constructs the authentication response based on validation results
  12. The system proceeds to send Notification SMS
  13. Alerts and Warning messages for data type violation are sent as per data definition

Please refer to the Authentication Service API for more details.

6. Lock/Unlock Authentication Types [↑]

6.1 Lock Authentication Types

When an individual wants to lock a particular authentication type using resident services, for example, locking demographic and/or biometric authentication, the system locks the requested authentication type after certain validations. After the requested authentication type is locked for the individual, then he/she will not be able to authenticate himself/herself by using locked authentication type.

6.2 Unlock Authentication Types

When an individual’s particular authentication type is locked and wants to unlock using resident services, for example, unlocking demographic and/or biometric authentication, the system unlocks the requested authentication type after certain validations. After the requested authentication type is unlocked for the individual, then he/she will be able to authenticate himself/herself by using unlocked authentication type.
