ORY Kratos supports two logout flows:
- Browser-based (easy): This flow works for all applications running on top of a browser. Websites, single-page apps, Cordova/Ionic, and so on.
- API-based (advanced): This flow works for native applications like iOS (Swift), Android (Java), Microsoft (.NET), React Native, Electron, and others.
Self-Service User Logout for Browser Applications
WARNING - This flow is currently vulnerable to CSRF attacks because anyone can direct your users to the logout endpoint. A future release of ORY Kratos will use POST Forms with Anti-CSRF Tokens to prevent this problem. This is tracked as kratos#142.
To log a user out, all you have to do is to direct the browser to
http://ory-kratos-public/auth/browser/logout. After successful logout, the
browser will be redirected to the
redirect_to value set in ORY Krato's
Self-Service User Logout for API Clients
This will be addressed in a future release of ORY Kratos.
