OAuth 2.0 is an authorization framework that is capable of providing a way for clients to access a resource with restricted access on behalf of the resource owner. OAuth 2.0 is capable of authorizing the flows for web applications, desktop applications and mobile applications among others.

OpenID Connect is an authentication protocol built on top of OAuth 2.0, which facilitates clients to verify the end-user identity against the authentication performed by an authorization server. At the same time, it provides methods to transfer the end user information through claims.

With OAuth as its base, OpenID Connect allows many types of clients such as web-based clients, mobile clients and javascript clients to verify the users with an authorization server-based authentication.
