Build Status

lua-resty-openidc

lua-resty-openidc is a library for NGINX implementing the OpenID Connect Relying Party (RP) and/or the OAuth 2.0 Resource Server (RS) functionality.

When used as an OpenID Connect Relying Party it authenticates users against an OpenID Connect Provider using OpenID Connect Discovery and the Basic Client Profile (i.e. the Authorization Code flow). When used as an OAuth 2.0 Resource Server it can validate OAuth 2.0 Bearer Access Tokens against an Authorization Server or, in case a JSON Web Token is used for an Access Token, verification can happen against a pre-configured secret/key .

It maintains sessions for authenticated users by leveraging lua-resty-session thus offering a configurable choice between storing the session state in a client-side browser cookie or use in of the server-side storage mechanisms shared-memory|memcache|redis.

It supports server-wide caching of resolved Discovery documents and validated Access Tokens.

It can be used as a reverse proxy terminating OAuth/OpenID Connect in front of an origin server so that the origin server/services can be protected with the relevant standards without implementing those on the server itself.

Dependencies

lua-resty-openidc depends on the following packages:

The dependencies above come automatically with OpenResty. You will need to install two extra pure-Lua dependencies that implement session management and HTTP client functions:

If you run as an OAuth 2.0 Resource Server and your access tokens are JWT bearer tokens and you want to verify those tokens locally (no external callouts required, see 2nd configuration example below), you need to install two more pure-Lua dependencies:

Installation

If you're using luarocks execute the following:

 luarocks install lua-resty-openidc

Otherwise copy openidc.lua somewhere in your lua_package_path under a directory named resty. If you are using OpenResty, the default location would be /usr/local/openresty/lualib/resty.

Running Tests

We've created a dockerized setup for the test in order to simplify the installation of dependencies.

In order to run the tests perform

$ docker build -f tests/Dockerfile . -t lua-resty-openidc/test
$ docker run -it --rm lua-resty-openidc/test:latest

if you want to create luacov coverage while testing use

$ docker run -it --rm -e coverage=t lua-resty-openidc/test:latest

as the second command
