OS
OSS

Today we are pleased to announce a new CoreOS open source project called dex: a standards-based identity provider and authentication solution.

Just about every project requires some sort of authentication and user-management. Applications need a way for users to log-in securely from a variety of platforms such as web, mobile, CLI tools and automated systems.
