Identity Providers supported by Auth0
Auth0 is an "identity hub" that supports a number of authentication providers using different protocols: OAuth2, WS-Federation, etc.
Out of the box, Auth0 supports the following:
- Active Directory
- Google Apps
- SQL & Custom Account stores
- Any SAML-P or WS-Federation system
- SharePoint Online Apps
- IP Address based Authentication
- Microsoft Account (formerly LiveID)
- Salesforce (sandbox)
- Salesforce Communities
- Evernote (sandbox)
- The City
- The City (sandbox)
- Planning Center
- Any OAuth2 Authorization Server
