About Altinn Authentication

The Altinn Authentication component provides functionality for authenticating users and systems accessing Altinn Apps and the Altinn platform.

The authentication component is not an ID-provider and only creates authentication sessions based on external ID-providers like ID-porten, Maskinporten, or Feide.

The authentication component creates JWT tokens with claims about the user and system.

The claims are based on the authentication information coming from the ID-providers.

Repository for Altinn Authentication can be found here.
