Discovery Document

The OpenID Connect protocol requires the use of multiple endpoints for authenticating users and for requesting resources including tokens, user information, and public keys.

To simplify implementations and increase flexibility, OpenID Connect allows the use of a Discovery document. This document contains JSON with key-value pairs providing details about the OpenID Connect provider’s configuration, authorization URIs, tokens, user information, and endpoints for public keys.

See the Yahoo Discovery document for details about Yahoo’s OpenID Connect configuration.
