Thinktectures IdentityServer v3, IdentityManager, IdentityModel for dummies RRS feed

  • Question

  • User-1782233322 posted

    Hi all. 

    As the title says, I would like to know what Thinktectures services as: IdentityServer v3, IdentityModel and IdentityManager is used for in simple terms. 

    I am fairly new to these concepts and I regard myself as a beginner with these terms.

    Am I wrong to say that IdentityServer is a way to set up your own IdP/STS?

    IdentityManager is a way to manage identity, by adding claims and roles?

    IdentityModel is a security helper library?

    Any help with clarifying in a simple manner would be greatly appreciated!

    Thanks in advance.
