Example: Set up Gluu as an Identity Provider#
Inrupt’s Solid OpenID Connect (OIDC) Broker Service provides a compatibility layer between Solid that identifies users with a WebID and traditional OpenID Connect (OIDC) applications that identify users with strings. The Solid OIDC Broker Service allows a Solid user to login with any existing OIDC-compliant identity provider.
Bundled up with the Solid OIDC Broker Service deployment is an install script to deploy a Gluu Identity Server internally inside Kubernetes.
