OAuth2-proxy 7.4.0


OAuth2-proxy is an open-source proxy that can be used to authenticate requests using OAuth2 providers such as Google, Github, and LinkedIn. This reverse proxy is designed to work behind a variety of different load balancers and web servers, including Nginx, Apache, and others. OAuth2-proxy simplifies the process of implementing OAuth2 authentication and authorization, allowing developers to focus on building applications instead of worrying about the details of authentication. In this way, OAuth2-proxy can help improve the security and usability of web applications by adding a layer of authentication that is both secure and user-friendly.

  • Easy integration with OAuth2 providers like Google, Github, Azure AD, and more
  • Supports multiple providers simultaneously
  • Provides a reverse proxy to protect applications and APIs without code changes
  • Support for multiple backends like LDAP, Basic Auth, or HTpasswd for authentication
  • Can be configured with a YAML file to customize options like cookies and sessions
  • Extensible with plugins and hooks for custom logic and integration with third-party services

  • Protecting a web application or API with an OAuth2 provider: OAuth2 Proxy can serve as a reverse proxy and authenticate users with an OAuth2 provider, enabling easy and secure access control for applications and APIs.
  • Enabling multi-factor authentication (MFA) for applications: OAuth2 Proxy can be configured to require MFA during authentication, adding an extra layer of security to web applications.

  1. Install and configure OAuth2 Proxy with your OAuth2 provider(s) and backend authentication method(s)
  2. Configure the proxy to protect your application or API by specifying the target URL, OAuth2 settings, and backend authentication settings
  3. Configure any additional options or plugins as desired, such as custom headers or rate limiting
  4. Start the proxy and verify that authentication and access control are working as expected
