  • WorkOS - The modern API for authentication & user identity.
  • authentik

    The authentication glue you need.

  • oauth2-proxy

    A reverse proxy that provides authentication with Google, Azure, OpenID Connect and many more identity providers.

    BTW also keycloak and other similar products offer the oauth-proxy capability, I even used the original oauth2-proxy https://github.com/oauth2-proxy/oauth2-proxy for a while, but it was getting too difficult to maintain for me. I used for a while https://github.com/thomseddon/traefik-forward-auth that was a smart hack configuring a single upstream provider, but it look abandoned. So I was considering authentik but apparently it's just oauth2-proxy embedded in it, at that point why not use oauth2-proxy directly.

  • InfluxDB

    Power Real-Time Data Analytics at Scale. Get real-time insights from all types of time series data with InfluxDB. Ingest, query, and analyze billions of data points in real-time with unbounded cardinality.

  • traefik-forward-auth

    Minimal forward authentication service that provides Google/OpenID oauth based login and authentication for the traefik reverse proxy
