Mozilla has chosen to replace their longstanding Persona authentication system with Auth0.
BELLEVUE, WA - As of November 30, 2016, Mozilla, one of the largest open-source organizations on the web, has replaced their longstanding Persona authentication system and has instead chosen Auth0 for all of their identity and access management (IAM) needs moving forward. The removal of Persona also means that Mozilla will no longer offer a public-facing authentication service.
Auth0 has already been integrated in many Mozilla web properties including Mozillians, Mozilla Moderator, and Mozilla Reps. Mozilla is making use of Auth0’s passwordless authentication, LDAP, and social connections features to make it easier for contributors and employees to gain access to the various services Mozilla provides.
We are honored to have Mozilla as both a customer and ally. Auth0 has always embraced and contributed to the open-source community and we built our platform around open standards like OAuth and OpenID Connect so that our platform can easily integrate and interoperate in any organization while still following industry standards and best practices.
Auth0 is the first identity management platform for application builders, and the only identity solution needed for custom-built applications. With a mission to secure the world’s identities so innovators can innovate, Auth0 provides the simplicity, extensibility, and expertise to scale and protect identities in any application, for any audience. Auth0 secures more than 100 million logins each day, giving enterprises the confidence to deliver trusted and elegant digital experiences to their customers around the world.
