OpenID Connect (OIDC) is an identity layer on top of the authorisation framework OAuth2.0. It standardises how authentication assertions are constructed and sent from the identity provider (CERN SSO) to the relying party (your application). Applications register with the Identity Provider to establish trust. Information about the authenticated user is typically contained in JSON Web Tokens.
