Overview#OpenID Connect Session Management is about Session Management and a specification that complements the OpenID Connect (OpenID Connect Core 1.0) specification by defining how to monitor the Resource Owner's login status at the Identity Provider (IDP) on an ongoing basis so that the Relying Party can logout a Resource Owner who has logged out of the Identity Provider (IDP).
by defining how to monitor the End-User's login status at the OpenID Connect Provider on an ongoing basis so that the Relying Party can log out an End-User who has logged out of the OpenID Connect Provider.
Both this specification and the OpenID Connect Front-Channel Logout OpenID.FrontChannel specification use front-channel communication, which communicate logout requests from the OpenID Connect Provider to Relying Party via the User-agent. In contrast, the OpenID Connect Back-Channel Logout 1.0 OpenID.BackChannel specification uses direct Back-channel Communication between the OpenID Connect Provider and Relying Parties being logged out.
