4.1.5. Initiation

To be able to send an identity authentication request, your library needs to know either the user’s identifier, or the OCP endpoint.

Your application will use the identifier and endpoint to send a WebFinger query to retreive details about the OpenID Connect provider. The response to this query includes (among other things):

  • Autorization Endpoint – this is always https://mojeid.cz/oidc/authorization/ and this address is used for identity authentication requests.

  • Token Endpoint – this is always https://mojeid.cz/oidc/token/ and this address is used for token requests.

  • UserInfo Endpoint – this is always https://mojeid.cz/oidc/userinfo/ and this address is used for user data requests.

An example of query for a specific user:

GET /oidc/.well-known/webfinger?resource=acct%3Ajoe%40mojeid.cz&rel=http%3A%2F%2Fopenid.net%2Fspecs%2Fconnect%2F1.0%2Fissuer HTTP/1.1
Host: mojeid.cz

An example of the server’s response:

HTTP/1.1 200 OK
Content-Type: application/jrd+json
