OpenID Connect has its roots in OAuth 2.0 and it has been developed under the OpenID Foundation. OAuth 2.0 is a framework for delegated authorization. There’s a misconception that it does authentication; however, OpenID Connect is the one built on top of OAuth 2.0 to do authentication.
Most major OpenID providers are due to discontinue OpenID support in the coming years. Google will shut down its OpenID service on April 20, 2015. Yahoo has hinted that it will follow suit by migrating to OpenID Connect.
OpenID 2.0 is incompatible with OpenID Connect - migration from OpenID 2.0 to OpenID Connect is not straightforward. In this webinar, Prabath Siriwardena, director of security architecture and Ishara Karunarathna, senior software engineer at WSO2, will guide you on how to carry out the migration in a painless manner with WSO2 Identity Server. They will cover the following areas:
- OpenID 2.0
- OpenID Connect
- OpenID 2.0 vs. OpenID Connect
- Migrating to OpenID Connect
