            How is passport receiving the profile?
            Asked 2020-May-10 at 13:53

            I have implemented passport with GitHub-Strategy. Here's the Glith. It works wonderfully and I'm receiving the user-profile on redirect from GitHub.

            Now, I'm only trying to understand how this actually works 'under the hood'. I did not find any similar question here on stackoverflow, neither on Passport.

            So if I open Chrome Developer Tools during the Auth-Flow, the following seems to be going on when I click on Login with GitHub:

            1. the node route /auth/github is called
            2. node redirects to
            3. the user is presented with GitHub-Login-Page
            4. User types in GitHub-credentials and clicks 'Login'
            5. GitHub checks the credentials
            6. If valid credentials are provided, user is authenticated and GitHub redirects to the registered callback-endpoint, which is in my case:
            7. The callback-url has a url-parameter, e.g. ?code=02337a951c242b9202fd. It's interesting to note, that it's a GET-method and nothing else is provided.
            8. On the server, the passport.authenticate('github', ...) method is called inside of the /auth/github/callback-route.
            9. When the GithubStrategy is instanciated, a callback-function is passed with the signature function(accessToken, refreshToken, profile, cb). Somehow magically, the accessToken and profile are fully available here. And I don't understand how this happens.

            How is passport receiving the profile? Is node.js making a server-side call to GitHub? Maybe with the ?code= ?

            Yeah that is exactly what NodeJS is doing. This doesn't have anything to do with Passport.JS or Node.JS. It is the OAuth mechanism of how authorizations work.

            Whenever a the Identity provider like twitter/facebook calls your /callback with a ?code= query param It then hits another url and gets the AccessToken, RefreshToken and Idtoken(which is basically the user profile).

            You can check out in the source code as well:

            In this strategy.js#L157 and strategy.js#L173 of passports oauth strategy:



            Use one oauth2_proxy instance with many ingress paths?
            Asked 2020-Apr-17 at 06:36

            I am running an app in a kubernetes service on Azure and have had it set up with an NGINX ingress controller and a public IP address with a FQDN. This was all working fine.
            I then wanted to add security through using the oauth2-proxy for third party sign-in. I would like to keep my setup to one ingress-controller and one oauth2_proxy per namespace, with multiple apps running together. As Azure does not support the use of sub-domains for this I have been using paths to route to the correct app. I've seen examples, like this, on how to use one oauth2_proxy for multiple sub-domains but is it possible to get it working with multiple paths instead?

            This is the current working setup with only one app, located on root /. I would like to switch to an app specific path and the ability to run multiple apps on different paths. eg. /my-app, /another-app etc.

            Sure, it's doable with multiple ingress paths inside single Ingress resource definition, please check this working example:
