Authentication and authorization often form the starting set of security capabilities one adds to a web application. Due to the widespread need for these capabilities across web applications of various types, numerous standards are available, including OpenID, OAuth, and others. For example, in case of authorization, OAuth 2.0 has been broadly adopted by vendors including IBM, Google, LinkedIn and others. This IBM Bluemix Node.js SSO sample shows how a Node.js application deployed to IBM BlueMix can be augmented to use IBM Identity-as-a-Service (IDaaS), which is an OAuth 2.0 compliant, policy-based authentication service that provides an easy to use single sign-on (SSO) capability for web and mobile applications.
