OpenID Connect

The OpenID Connect Provider role is a very useful but complex feature to enhance interoperability of Authelia with other products.

We have decided to implement OpenID Connect as a beta feature, it’s suggested you only utilize it for testing and providing feedback, and should take caution in relying on it in production as of now. OpenID Connect and it’s related endpoints are not enabled by default unless you specifically configure the OpenID Connect section.

As OpenID Connect is fairly complex (the OpenID Connect Provider role especially so) it’s intentional that it is both a beta and that the implemented features are part of a thoughtful roadmap. Items that are not immediately obvious as required (i.e. bug fixes or spec features), will likely be discussed in team meetings or on GitHub issues before being added to the list. We want to implement this feature in a very thoughtful way in order to avoid security issues.
