The Mission:

Touchpoint Platform is part of ING’s “Think Forward” strategy to become a truly global bank. It is a strategic program that that aims to provide a globally scalable banking platform by simplifying and standardizing our banking applications and creating a modularly built system.

The Touchpoint Architecture Platform uses an API Gateway for 'external' client applications to access the TPA platform API's. API Security defines how the APIs of the Touchpoint Architecture are protected and can communicate between each other in a secure and scalable way.

The target state for the Touchpoint Architecture is that all APIs within ING across all countries, can communicate with each other with little restrictions within the platform.

Systems which are outside of the Touchpoint Platform (Security Boundary) will use the API Gateway to access APIs within the platform.

The API Gateway will handle all Client Application-specific security measures (like CORS, CSRF, JSON Busting for browsers and SRP channel for Mobile, etc) to avoid APIs to have to implement these themselves.
