Openskies Flight Passport


Identity and Authentication for Unmanned Aviation

This is a production instance of Flight Passport. Flight Passport is a OAUTH / OpenID Connect server used to authenticate and issue credentials in the form of JWT tokens to access different U-Space / UTM services.


The upcoming U-Space and UTM ecosystem and the associated standards, use JWT Tokens and OAUTH 2.0 technology to authenticate users and services. This is a open-source implementation of OAUTH 2.0 server built specifically for UTM / U-Space. It supports the Client Credentials flow for Machine to Machine interactions and the Authorization Code flow for cases where an individual / person is associated via the Open ID connect standard. In addition, it supports most existing Identity and Authentication platforms if you want to link it to them.

What can I do with a Token?

Javascript Web Tokens (JWT) is the technology that is used as a mechanism for exchanging credentials across U-Space / UTM. Using a JWT token issued by this server, you can connect to for example, a DSS instance, use it for applications like Flight Spotlight, Flight Blender, DSS and across many other applications and serivice providers for UTM and U-Space. Importantly, you can self-host this software to issue your own tokens securely and conduct analysis against it.
