Apache Tomcat configuration

URIEncoding: This specifies the character encoding used to decode the URI bytes, after %xx decoding the URL. If not specified, ISO-8859-1 will be used.

The default encoding for parameters in Apache Tomcat is ISO-8859-1 and that leads to this error:

ERROR org.openid4java.consumer.ConsumerManager - Verification failed for: reason: null
ERROR - Error processing return of Google Auth Service:null

The solution is to set the encoding to UTF-8 in your connectors (depending on which one you're using)

Example (server.xml):

<Connector URIEncoding="UTF-8" connectionTimeout="20000" port="8080" protocol="HTTP/1.1" redirectPort="8443"/>
