comment nginx goes to the wrong site when requested site is not listening on port 80
And 421 - Misdirected request seems very interesting in this situation but I think it is a little premature to send HTTP/2 status codes, maybe in 6 months time....

My first instinct is that 403 is not the best because the server is not so much refusing to serve the request as it is unable to serve the request for a site that it doesn't host. So 404 feels more appropriate. But thank you, your solution appears to be what I need, and I'll accept your answer as soon as I've had a moment to try it out.

comment Do I need my own oauth and/or openid connect provider
I'm asking this question on here in stead of Security because I don't feel it is about securing the system, it is about how to implement the chosen security model (i.e. OpenID connect) ... If this is better covered in Security I am happy to have the question moved to there.

comment Do I need my own oauth and/or openid connect provider
Indeed, and I've earmarked python liboauth and/or pyoidc as primary candidates for providing nearly all the functionality I need. There is also libraries from janrain and from google that look promising. None of the libraries tell me whether I need to implement a provider/authorization server or whether I should register my clients AND API separately with the Id-providers.

Yes it is. Now why don't you fix your answer so that I can award you the credit?
