OpenID Connect

NOT ON THE CURRENT EDITION
This blip is not on the current edition of the radar. If it was on one of the last few editions it is likely that it is still relevant. If the blip is older it might no longer be relevant and our assessment might be different today. Unfortunately, we simply don't have the bandwidth to continuously review blips from previous editions of the radarUnderstand more

OpenID Connect is a standard protocol for federated identity built on OAuth 2.0. It addresses a long-standing need for a simple, web-based protocol to exchange trusted authentication and authorization information. Previous standards like SAML or generic OAuth 2.0 have proven too broad and complex to ensure universal compatibility. Our hope is that OpenID Connect can provide a useful basis for secure access to RESTful microservices with authenticated end-user identity.
