Pinniped is a set of tools for enabling authentication in Kubernetes clusters using any identity provider that supports the OpenID Connect (OIDC) standard. It provides a simple and secure way to manage user authentication across multiple clusters and clouds, and can be integrated with existing identity systems. With Pinniped, administrators can easily configure and manage authentication policies, while developers can focus on building applications without worrying about the underlying authentication infrastructure. Pinniped also supports token exchange, which allows for secure communication between clusters and external services.
