An authorization endpoint is an HTTP endpoint that micropub and IndieAuth clients can use to identify a user or obtain an authorization code to be able to post to their website.



An authorization endpoint has to implement the IndieAuthProtocol.

Identification header

Every endpoint MUST return a

IndieAuth: authorization_endpoint

HTTP header in all responses.

This is used by clients to verify that the server understands the IndieAuth protocol.
