What is Authzed? What is SpiceDB?

SpiceDB is a database system for managing security-critical permissions checking.

SpiceDB acts as a centralized service that stores authorization data. Once stored, data can be performantly queried to answer questions such as "Does this user have access to this resource?" and "What are all the resources this user has access to?".

Authzed operates the globally available, serverless database platform for SpiceDB.

Getting Started

  1. Log into the Authzed dashboard to create a serverless SpiceDB instance or run SpiceDB yourself.
  2. Start the Protecting Your First App guide
