The Relying Party (RP) is a role in network based computer Entity that uses other web services to determine the identifiers, attributes, behaviors and inferences behind another web entity that is trying to access resources that it controls.


  • An Entity that contains the role of RP:
  1. here inlcudes the role of a Data Controller that contains user information and is required to meet the rules of one or more legal jurisdictions,
  2. will often encompasses the OpenID Connect client role among other roles.
  3. may include the role of a Resource provider, but may not include the role of a provider of User Private Information; which does not preclude the Entity providing the RP role from providing other roles as well.
