Cross-Platform Authentication - Service Provider

This project contains a reference implementation of the Cross-Platform Authentication Service Provider.

This software implements version 1.0 of the Cross-Platform Authentication Protocol (EBU Tech 3366)

More information on the EBU Cross-Platform Authentication project


Ensure your system has Node.js (v0.10 or later) and NPM installed.

Getting started

$ git clone
$ cd cpa-service-provider

Edit config.local.js to set the necessary configuration options:

  • Database connection settings
  • Authorization Provider server URL and access token
  • Service provider domain name

Initialise the database

$ NODE_ENV=development bin/init-db

Start the server

$ bin/server

Specify --help to see available command-line options:

$ bin/server --help
