Tailscale Authentication for NGINX

Read time in minutes: 0

Mimi is happy
<Mimi> This page shows how to use nginx-auth, a tool that implements the NGINX HTTP subrequest authentication protocol, to authenticate requests to internal services proxied behind NGINX with Tailscale. It also explains how to install and configure nginx-auth and NGINX, and how to use the response headers to pass authentication information to the applications. The benefits of this approach are similar to setting up a corporate SSO system without the installation and maintenance overhead.
