The project goal is to provide simple SSO in node.js.

Getting started

  1. get nodeSSO:

    npm install nodeSSO


    git clone git@github.com:adrai/nodeSSO.git

  2. go to /example

  3. run npm install express, npm install everyauth

  4. start the app node server.js

  5. direct your browser to localhost:3001

Quick Start

Using nodeSSO comes very easy to use with everyauth and express.

  1. Create a sso juggler

    var SsoJuggler = require('nodeSSO');
    var ssoJuggler = new SsoJuggler({
        authenticationPath: '/auth/openid?openid_identifier=https://www.google.com/accounts/o8/id'
  2. use everyauth

    var everyauth = require('everyauth');
        .findOrCreateUser( function (session, userMetadata) {
          // Don't forget to save the userIdentifier!
          ssoJuggler.saveUserIdentifier(session, userMetadata.email);
          return userMetadata;
  3. use express

    var express = require('express');
    var app = express.createServer(
      , express.static(__dirname + "/public")
      , express.cookieParser()
      , express.session({ secret: 'htuayreve' })
      , everyauth.middleware()
  4. add routes

  5. and run the service

  6. now you can authenticate calling: "http://localhost:3001/auth?callbackUrl=http://www.google.ch" and deauthenticat calling: "http://localhost:3001/deauth?callbackUrl=http://www.google.ch"

  7. after a successfull authentication you will receive the userIdentifier with the parameter userIdentifier
