miiCard, online identity verification service, has introduced a new API: miiCard Directory API. The Directory API allows applications to discover miiCard members who have published a public profile page and have elected to be found by the service. The member lookup service can be used with any number of online environments (e.g. social media, transactions, etc.).
miiCard CEO, James Varga, commented:
"As we conduct more and more of our daily lives online, it is critical that we do so with the same trust and confidence as we do in the offline world....miiCard continues to extend its identity service platform to make it as easy as possible to build a range of useful identity based services. With Directory API, developers can construct software extensions without the need for a full integration."
miiCard unveiled the Directory API at the Dublin Web Summit. Users need no API keys, developer accounts, or OAuth tokens. Simply query the API and parse the responses. miiCard acts in the Bring Your Own Identity (BYOID) space and gives users control, convenience, flexibility, and the ease of a single trusted identity. miiCard currently serves over 350 million people across 10 countries.
The Directory API uses HTTP calls and returns in a JSON data format. Through the API, apps can search for information published on a public profile, member data, and by a hash of known data for enhanced privacy. For more information, visit the API site.
miiCard has been building services and APIs that streamline identification and build trust across the ever expanding web. One stop shops for identification have proven extremely helpful for many applications. For those interested in using such trust in a member lookup environment, consider the Directory API for free today.
