WordPress OpenID Connect Client


This plugin works with any OpenID provider that conforms to the OpenID Connect 1.0 standard. OpenID Connect 1.0 is a simple identity layer on top of the OAuth 2.0 protocol. It allows Clients to verify the identity of the End-User based on the authentication performed by an Authorization Server, as well as to obtain basic profile information about the End-User in an interoperable and REST-like manner.
OpenID Connect identifies a set of personal attributes that can be exchanged between Identity Providers and the apps that use them, and includes an approval step so that users can consent (or deny) the sharing of this information.Because OpenID Connect standardizes mechanisms by which users can control the sharing of the identity that they use.

This plugin enables user registration and authentication against any standard OpenID Connect (OIDC) Provider.

This plugin enables a WordPress site to send users to an external OpenID Provider for login.

If the user has an existing account in the OpenID Connect Provider, but not in WordPress, this plugin will enable dynamic registration of the user in WordPress.
