Arduino selects Auth0 as standardized login for ecosystem

Arduino TeamJuly 28th, 2019

We are excited to announce that we’ve selected Auth0 as the identity management platform of choice for Arduino. We will replace our own Single Sign On solution with Auth0 for all public facing web properties, including Arduino Create and other apps.

We discovered that our own homegrown authentication solution would not scale to meet the rapidly developing needs of the growing global community and decided to reach out to Auth0. In addition to Single Sign On, Arduino will take advantage of Auth0’s new Universal Login, which enables developers to completely customise their branded authentication experiences quickly, and Device Flow for browserless or input-constrained devices.

“We wanted a robust platform to replace our SSO solution but also give us the flexibility to do cool, new things in the device authentication space. Auth0 is a brand we admire, and their API-based approach makes it easy to migrate our login data in a way that’s completely transparent for the customer. We are excited to welcome them to our global community.” – Gianluca Varisco, Arduino CISO

We plan to leverage the power of both communities and events, and explore a technical partnership in the IoT domain. Auth0 currently secures more than 2.5 billion logins per month for 21 million users.

“I have been using Arduino for years as the brain for my personal projects, so working with them in a business capacity is really rewarding. When you empower the developer with simple, powerful tools, the whole business benefits. We are excited by the reach of the Arduino community and aligned in our mission to help the developer in their journey to innovate.” – Eugenio Pace, Auth0 CEO and co-founder
