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 by Okta takes a modern approach to customer identity and enables organizations to provide secure access to any application, for any user. Auth0 is a highly customizable platform that is as simple as development teams want, and as flexible as they need. Safeguarding billions of login transactions each month, Auth0 delivers convenience, privacy, and security so customers can focus on innovation. For more information, visit https://auth0.com.
