Getting Started With WWPass as an OpenID Connect Identity Provider in Okta

This document describes how to configure WWPass as an OpenID Connect identity provider within Okta to protect your applications.


WWPass provides an OpenID Connect authentication connector powered by WWPass’s strong MFA and data encryption technology.

This guide will walk you through the steps needed to start using WWPass as an OpenID Connect identity provider in Okta for user authentication in your applications.


Before getting started,r, you need to have an Okta developer account.

Also, you needa WWPass developer account. Open with your browser, click Log in, and follow the instruction to create a new developer account.

Once you’ve created the developer account, you need to register your application domain to use WWPass authentication with your Okta Web Apps. Log in to your WWPass developer account, choose Okta in the left menu and click Add new Okta Web App. Then follow the instructions to register and verify your application domain.

This is the process to register your website on the WWPass network. After completing, you will be able to provide WWPass authentication to your end users as a registered WWPass Application. Perform the following steps as prompted:

  • Enter your Domain name and Okta subdomain. WWPass will display this domain name to the users during login. Click Add Domain.
  • Choose the domain verification method:
    • HTTP Verification
    • DNS TXT Verification
    • DNS CNAME Verification

Verify the domain name of your WWPass application or website. Then you will be provided with instructions on how to configure Okta enterprise authentication.

Save the client secret in a safe place. You may either instantly copy it to your application settings or store it in a password manager you trust. We suggest using PassHub for storing such information as it is the only password manager that is protected by WWPass MFA. You can always reset the client secret later if needed.
