Open Standards

Open standards are critical for identity which is digtial infrastructure. Gluu leverages OpenID to authenticate people using the Web, FIDO for passkey and security key authentication, OAuth for first party mobile authentication, and SAML for workforce applications and B2B (if OpenID Connect is not available!)


OpenID Connect is a ubiquitous federated identity standard for web-based applications. Gluu has accumulated many OpenID Provider Certifications over the years.  Gluu enables companies to federate trusted OpenID Providers, and to act as an OpenID Provider to internal applications.


OAuth defines many useful back-channel, i.e. non-browser identity flows. OpenID Connect itself is a superset of OAuth 2.0 which defines a browser-based identity layer. There are many OAuth specs on a number of different topics, like access tokens, registration, and client authentication. 


A set of standards that enable the hardware, operating system, browser, and identity provider to authenticate a person using phishing-resistent, client-side biometrics.  Flex provides FIDO endpoint that support passkeys, USB, Bluetooth. and platform authenticators.


SAML, the XML identity federation predecessor of OpenID Connect, is used primiarily by SaaS and older web-based enterprise applications for SSO.  In Flex, the Keycloak component, configured by the Janssen control plane, provides the SAML IDP endpoints.
