Since 2.1.2022 the SCC software "oidc-agent" is part of the Linux distribution DEBIAN. Currently still part of the newly included software, the so-called unstable branch, the SCC development can now be easily installed on DEBIAN Linux.

oidc-agent includes a set of tools for managing OpenID Connect tokens and makes them easily usable from the command line. It is based on the design of ssh-agent, so that users can handle OIDC tokens in a similar way to ssh keys. oidc-agent is started at the beginning of an X session or a login session. By using environment variables, the agent can be found and used to manage OIDC tokens.

The software is also available for a number of other Linux distributions via a repository server at SCC.

Further information can be found on the oidc-agent homepage and in the GitBook.
