Open standards to integrate easily
Mobile Connect uses the OpenID Connect standard and authentication is performed by a mobile phone. Mobile Connect has been standardized by the GSMA and is provided by each individual mobile network operator.
All APIs are based on RESTful API principles. Each API is provided through 'Network Services' working over HTTP protocols, working the same way on mobile applications and websites.
To simplify the integration of Mobile Connect with your service, we are offering complete set of tools, documentation and SDK.
Mobile Connect uses two principal APIs:
- The Discovery API enables your application to recognise the mobile network being used and whether Mobile Connect is available for that network. It also provides your application with the various URLs for the Mobile Connect service corresponding with the user's network.
- The Mobile Connect API allows the user to authenticate themselves using their Mobile Connect user account.
OpenID Connect: a standard that simplifies your integration work
This API is based on OpenID Connect, which combines end-user authentication with OAuth2 authorisation. It allows you to verify the identity of your user, perform ID federation, and collect the end-user consent required to access his/her personal data. This API is compliant with the OpenID Connect core specification. Once you have integrated this API, you will be able to access other APIs (e.g. Form Filling, Check ID…). Authentication Spain API is available for all Mobile customers in Orange Spain.
To encourage and stimulate innovation in the developer community, we provide free APIs to developers with restrictions on high volume and inappropriate usage.
The API Authentication Spain free offer provides to developers up to 1000 free Mobile Connect authentications per month with a level of assurance 2 (LoA2 or click OK)
Please contact us if you are interested in higher volumes or LoA3 authentication.
Mobile Connect is under deployement all over Orange footprint. Find out the countries where the API is available.
