AspNet.Security.OAuth.Providers is a collection of security middleware that you can use in your ASP.NET Core application to support social authentication providers like GitHub, Foursquare or Dropbox. It is directly inspired by Jerrie Pelser's initiative, Owin.Security.Providers.

The latest official release can be found on NuGet and the nightly builds on MyGet.

Getting started

Adding social authentication to your application is a breeze and just requires a few lines in your Startup class:

app.UseGitHubAuthentication(options =>
    options.ClientId = "49e302895d8b09ea5656";
    options.ClientSecret = "98f1bf028608901e9df91d64ee61536fe562064b";

See https://github.com/aspnet-contrib/AspNet.Security.OAuth.Providers/tree/dev/samples/Mvc.Client for a complete sample using ASP.NET Core MVC and supporting multiple social providers.
