Tyk has multiple integration options with third parties, and these integrations can occur in a few places:
- Within the gateway itself using Dynamic JS Middleware (Hybrid or On-Prem only)
- Externally to the gateway using a broker (The Tyk Identity Broker) (On-Prem only)
- Built-in federation support via JSON Web Tokens or Open ID Connect (Cloud, Hybrid and on-Prem)
All three of the above have different and unique use cases and can be deployed differently depending on your platform and integration requirements.
