Low-level Python OIDC Client library

Project description

This is a low-level Python library for authentication against OpenID Providers (e.g. Google).

For high-level libraries see the Aiakos project.

What is OpenID Connect?

It’s a OAuth2-based standard for authentication in applications.

Legacy authorization servers

openid-connect does also support some legacy OAuth2 providers that do not implement OpenID Connect protocol:

  • facebook

  • gitlab

  • github

For gitlab and github - both official and on-premise instances are supported.


  • Python 3.7+ - might work on older 3.x versions, but it’s not tested

  • python-jose
