OpenID Connect—or OIDC—is a standard identity layer built on top of OAuth 2.
This lets you build support for signing into your application via the user’s email verified Dropbox identity, which reduces the number of steps for a user to sign up for your service. It provides the end user with a simple click through consent screen, and returns basic user information to your application.
OIDC is an open standard, supported by many tools and libraries that can help you integrate this functionality.
