Authentication and Authorization Flows

Introduction to the various flows used for authentication and authorization of applications and APIs.

Auth0 uses OpenID Connect (OIDC) and OAuth 2.0 to authenticate users and get their authorization to access protected resources. With Auth0, you can easily support different flows in your own applications and APIs without worrying about the OAuth 2.0/OIDC specification or the other technical aspects of authentication and authorization.

We support scenarios for server-side, mobile, desktop, client-side, machine-to-machine, and device applications.
