Integrate the Curity Identity Server with Tyk

Did you know you can integrate the Curity Identity Server with the Tyk Developer Portal?

Tyk recently published a step-by-step guide explaining how to integrate the Curity Identity Server with the Tyk using the OpenID Connect Dynamic Client Registration (DCR) protocol.

The process in short:

  1. You create an account with the Tyk Developer Portal and use the portal to create a new client.
  2. Tyk sends a DCR request to the IDP (The Curity Identity Server). The IDP replies with the Client ID and Secret.
  3. Using the provided Client ID and Secret, you (or an application) can initiate an Authorization flow to obtain an Access Token from The Curity Identity Server.
  4. You (or the application) can then use the Access Token when calling an API exposed by Tyk. When a JWT is used to protect the API, Tyk validates the token using the JWKS provided by The Curity Identity Server. The API can also be protected using the Split Token Approach.
