Super-scalable session management
Streaming video and content for large populations require a different type of session management.
You may want to avoid that millions of sessions need to be maintained on your content server or that millions of user profiles need to be kept on your web server. Conversely, you may want to verify the viewer’s right to view your streaming video before every video block that is being downloaded.
OpenID Connect provides the standard for bearer ID-tokens. Using ID-tokens, stateless sessions can be set up whereby the ID-token contains all information to control access. There is no need for caching user data and user sessions.
