    Authelia is an open-source authentication and authorization server providing 2-factor authentication and single sign-on (SSO) for your applications via a web portal. It acts as a companion of reverse proxies like nginx or Traefik by handling forwarded authentication and authorization requests.

    Authelia can be installed as a standalone service using Docker or NPM but can also be deployed easily on Kubernetes leveraging ingress controllers and ingress configuration.

    Here is what Authelia's portal looks like
