Integrations

These are a set of open specifications and protocols that specify how to design an authentication and authorization system. They specify how you should manage identity, move personal data securely, and decide who can access applications and data. The identity industry standards that we use at ID.me are:

Open Authorization (OAuth) 2.0

An authorization standard that allows a user to grant limited access to their resources on one site to another site, without having to expose their credentials. You use this standard every time you log in to a site using your Google account and you are asked if you agree with sharing your email address and your contacts list with that site.

Oauth auth code dataflow

OpenID Connect (OIDC)

An identity layer that sits on top of OAuth 2 and allows for easy verification of the user's identity, as well as the ability to get basic profile information from the identity provider.

Oidc auth code dataflow

Security Assertion Markup Language (SAML)

An open-standard, XML-based data format that allows businesses to communicate user authentication and authorization information to partner companies and enterprise applications their employees may use.
