Authentication with G Suite (Google Apps)

Posted 1 year ago by gbuckingham89

I'm starting work on an internal app for an organisation soon which I'll be building on Laravel. They want to use their existing database of users on G Suite (/Google Apps) for authentication, plus us developers we'll also need access (and also have a G Suite account).

Security of this app is important as it'll be handling very sensitive data - so we won't want anyone else authenticating unless they're from one of our two G Suite accounts. I'm aware of Socialite for oAuth authentication which would save us some work - do you think it's a good approach to use in combination with some sort of whitelist which we can check against?

Has anyone else done something similar? What was your approach?
