Identity and access management for both subscribers and viewers is the cornerstone for understanding usage trends and delivering optimal content through the appropriate channels.

Authlete provides the latest OAuth/OIDC implementations as APIs. This allows media operators to offload the development and operation of OAuth/OIDC functions, enabling them to quickly incorporate user authentication and consent verification flows suitable for multi-device and multi-location situations, such as ‘device flow’ and CIBA.
In addition, the authorization server function that controls OAuth/OIDC is completely separate from the user authentication, consent verification and privilege management systems, maximizing administrative flexibility. Authlete operates as a backend service, so that you can build frontend elements such as login screens and API endpoints without relying on Authlete.
