In authentication, a user or application proves they are who they say they are by providing valid credentials. The most common verification is password, often combined with other methods, such as a fingerprint.
Auth0 simplifies the use of open industry standards like OAuth 2.0, OIDC, and SAML to authenticate. Users can log into your applications with social media credentials, corporate accounts, and a broad range of other credentials.
Implement Auth0 Universal Login (or an alternative) to control access to your applications.
Source users from social identity providers (such as Facebook or SalesForce), enterprise user stores (such as Active Directory or Google Workspace), a custom database, and more.
Set up sources of user accounts to authenticate your applications and APIs.
Authenticate users with an email/username and password and save their credentials in an Auth0-provided user store or in your own database.
Authenticate users with external, federated identity providers such as Azure AD, Google Workspace, and PingFederate.
Easily implement open industry-standard protocols like OAuth 2.0, SAML, and LDAP for authentication and authorization.
