The nextAuth authentication server acts as the endpoint for authentication by the nextAuth mobile library. It handles all server-side credential management, creation of new device accounts and session management (including push messages).
The authentication server offers a privileged REST API for integration with business application back-ends. It can also be integrated through SAML, OAuth2 and OIDC by using the nextAuth IdP. Management of user attributes and identity verification is performed through separate modules and applications.
