NOTE: THIS IS NOW WORK IN PROGRESS on improving the library, I'm not sure if anything works now, and/or if there are no errors/security issues.


Go-OpenID is an implementation of OpenID authentication protocol in Golang.

For now, the implementation does not manage XRI identifier, and can only check authentication with a direct request.

Here are the specifications used:


go get


url := openid.GetRedirectURL("Identifier", "", "/loginCheck")

Now you have to redirect the user to the url returned. The OP will then forward the user back to you, after authenticating him.

To check the identity, do that:

grant, id, err := openid.Verify(URL)

URL is the url the user was redirected to. grant will be true if the user was correctly authenticated, false otherwise. If the user was authenticated, id contains its identifier.
