IDP Service Introduction

This documentation is intended for any organisation or service that intends to use the Mydex Identity as Service to replace their existing username and password services or to add Mydex into their supported Identity Providers.

Background

Mydex is an ISO27001 certified company and acts an identity provider in two specific capacities:

The key differentiation is that the MydexID is centred on the individual and can be used any context of their life for personal, business and civil engagement. The MydexID ensures that the individual remains in control of their digital identity at all times.

Mydex as a community interest company provides services to individuals free of charge at all times and the MydexID and underpinning personal data store is available for life free of charge.

Organisations pay an initial connection fee per service connected to our identity services and a pay as you go connection fee per individual they connect with. Ongoing support fees are calculated as a percentage of the total connection fees paid annually on anniversary.
