Software Heritage - Authentication
swh-auth is a set of utility libraries related to user authentication
in applications and services based on the use of Keycloak and OpenID Connect.
Keycloak is an open source software enabling single sign-on (SSO) with identity
and access management.
OpenID Connect (OIDC) is an authentication layer on top of OAuth 2.0, widely
used in modern web applications and services.
swh-auth notably offers the following features:
swh.auth.keycloak.KeycloakOpenIDConnect class to ease the
interaction with a Keycloak server
pytest plugin with the
keycloak_oidc fixture to mock Keycloak
responses in unit tests
generic backends, views and middlewares to easily plug OpenID Connect authentication
in any Django or Django REST framework application
