Nevertheless, it can be used to provide attribute based authentication.
openid connect is a user identity attribute disclosure protocol rather than an authentication protocol
identity is a set of claims about a person with regards to another entity.
identity is not unique to the user
You provide a different set of claim when sharing them to your boss and when sharing them with your family.
It is not an identifier that is unique.
I’ll start with the easy part
In a community, it’s defined as a set of claims related to en entity
I generally, there are many identities per entity.
Here, you need to remember two things
- there are many mapping to an entity in general, a lot of people mistakenly thing that there is only one identity per entity. That is false.
- conflict identity and identifier. Identifier is a label that uniquely identifies the identity in a set of identities. So please be careful not to conflict them.
