Project Overview

KDE websites currently use OpenLDAP and a PHP application to authenticate and manage users (https://identity.kde.org/). OpenLDAP is an old and complex method of authenticating and managing user identity and several modern approaches are available. Moreover many services do not support OpenLDAP authentication (Eg. discourse). One of the newer approaches is to use OAuth2. OAuth2 is a modern approach to authentication and fixes the various issues with LDAP. KDE has a vast web infrastructure so it isn’t possible to migrate all its services to the new authentication system in a short period. So, the goal of this project would be to migrate two or more KDE services to the new authentication system
