Identity is the missing link that connects all your users, apps, services, and devices to each other and the rest of the world. Christian Smith (@anvilhacks) is founder of Anvil Research (@AnvilResearch) and the creator of Anvil Connect, an open source authorization server built with Node.js to authenticate your users and protect your APIs.
Anvil Connect simplifies security when you have many apps and services to integrate. It acts as a broker between your apps, APIs, and a long list of OAuth providers like Google, Facebook, Twitter, and GitHub. The server works with apps written in any programming language that speaks HTTP. The code is MIT licensed and implements open standards like OAuth 2.0, OpenID Connect, and JSON Web Tokens.
