Authelia is an open-source authentication and authorization providing 2-factor authentication and single sign-on (SSO) for your applications. It acts as a companion of reverse proxies by handling authentication and authorization requests.
Authelia can be installed as a standalone service using Docker or NPM but can also be deployed easily on Kubernetes. On the latest, one can leverage ingress configuration to set up authentication and authorizations for specific services in only few seconds.
Here is the list of the main available features:
- U2F - Universal 2-Factor - support with Yubikey.
- TOTP - Time-Base One Time password - support with Google Authenticator.
- Password reset with identity verification using email.
- Single-factor only authentication method available.
- Access restriction after too many authentication attempts.
- User-defined access control per subdomain and resource.
- Support of [basic authentication] for endpoints protected by single factor.
- High-availability using distributed database and KV store.
- Compatible with Kubernetes ingress-nginx controller out of the box.
