OpenID Connect (OIDC)

OIDC federated authentication for your app

Use Descope as an OpenID Connect provider to simplify authentication and save developer time. Go passwordless without changing your existing identity provider or user store.

OpenID Connect (OIDC) is an identity layer built on top of the OAuth2 authorization standard. OIDC enables applications to verify user identities and get basic profile information in a standardized and interoperable manner. Learn the basics and benefits of OIDC by visiting the link below.
