Know-Your-Customer support for GNU Taler

This work is about adding proper Know-Your-Customer (KYC) support to GNU Taler to satisfy regulatory requirements to operate the Taler payment service. However, we will not implement our own KYC solution but instead provide a generic way to interface with existing KYC providers and implement several concrete adapters. By supporting multiple providers we will ensure that our KYC abstraction is reasonably generic. The KYC integration will be configurable to adjust the deployment to the legal requirements of different countries. Finally, we will support attestation of collected KYC information to third parties. This will allow the payment system to assure consumers receiving a bill about the identity of the invoicing business.

Run by Taler Systems SA
