Authentication for Apps and Services: Keymaster was originally presented at Lookout's Scaling for Mobile event on July 25, 2013. Ariel Salomon is a Principal Software Engineer at Lookout, Inc. Ariel's talk focused on setting up authentication between mobile apps and services. He gives a great overview of Keymaster. Lookout has grown immensely in the last year. We've doubled the size of the company—added more than 80 engineers to the team, support 45+ million users, have over 1000 machines in production, see over 125,000 QPS and more than 2.6 billion requests/month. Our analysts use Hadoop, Hive, and MySQL to interactively manipulate multibillion row tables. With that, there are bound to be some growing pains and lessons learned.
