OpenID Connect Sign-On Overview

Support Note
This topic is not relevant to all Bluescape members and may not apply to all Organizations. If you’re unsure whether your Organization has this capability, please contact your IT department.

What is OpenID Connect?

OpenID Connect (OIDC) is an open authentication protocol that adds an identity layer to OAuth 2.0 by profiling and extending it. Members can utilize OIDC to verify an end user’s identity using authorization server authentication. By layering OIDC on top of OAuth 2.0, a single framework is created that promises to protect APIs, mobile native apps, and browser apps in a unified design.

Note: Members logging on to SSO-enabled organizations should not use the OIDC login flow.
