We are very excited to announce the 1.0 release of ORY Hydra, the open source OpenID Connect Certified® certified OAuth 2.0 and OpenID Connect server that runs natively everywhere: Kubernetes, Virtual Machines, Bare-Metal-Servers, Windows, IoT devices.

ORY Hydra is available via GitHub, Docker, Helm, Homebrew, Scoop, and many other common package managers.

This release concludes a year-long development process where maintainers and adopters worked relentlessly on building the most resilient, efficient, and easiest to integrate OpenID and OAuth 2.0 Server to date. We would like to thank everyone at Segment, Raspberry PI, Arduino, Hootsuite, and many other companies for their invaluable feedback and trust in this open source project.

As part of this release, we are pleased to announce that ORY Hydra has been certified as an OpenID Provider by the OpenID Foundation! Certified profiles include: Basic OP, Implicit OP, Hybrid OP, Config OP, Dynamic OP.

In the name of all the maintainers and contributors, we want to thank our sponsors Raspberry PI, German Stock Exchange, ThoughtWorks, Tulip Retail, AllMyFunds and everyone who helped financially with bringing this project forward.

What's next?

There are many exciting things coming up. We are currently in the process of applying to become a Cloud Native Computing Foundation incubating project. There are also several plans of improving interoperability with Kubernetes through Custom Resources and Custom Controllers. We are also planning of implementing several up-and-coming specs such as the Financial-grade API proposals and the OAuth 2.0 Mutual TLS Client Authentication Draft.
