Full Description

Cross-Platform Authentication - Authorization Provider

This project contains a reference implementation of the Cross-Platform
Authentication Authorization Provider.

This software implements version 1.0 of the Cross-Platform Authentication Protocol (EBU Tech 3366).

More information on the EBU Cross-Platform Authentication project.


Ensure your system has Node.js (v0.10 or later) and NPM installed.

Getting started

$ git clone
$ cd cpa-auth-provider

The server reads configuration settings from the file config.local.js.
An example config for reference is in config.dist.js.

  • Identity provider OAuth 2 client ID, client secret, and callback URL. GitHub and Facebook are supported as identity providers
  • Database connection settings
  • Verification URL at the Authorization Provider, to be displayed to the user
  • Service provider domain names and access tokens

Initialise the database

$ NODE_ENV=development bin/init-db

Start the server

$ bin/server

Specify --help to see available command-line options:

$ bin/server --help
