Identity is ubiquitous. Regardless of the kind of applications you develop you will, at some point, almost certainly have to deal with identifying users of the app. Yet it's seldom a central part of the app’s value proposition and rarely a core competency for developers. Wouldn’t it be nice to outsource user authentication and free yourself from the liability and complexity of storing and managing passwords? OpenID Connect, just ratified earlier this year and backed by some big industry names, is emerging as the go to standard way to do exactly that. Connect allows you to easily and securely get an answer to the question: “What is the identity of the person currently using this browser or native app?” Unlike some of it’s predecessors, however, Connect has roots spanning the consumer, SaaS and enterprise space and is better suited to serve a diverse set of deployments. Come find out more about Connect in this talk from a seasoned veteran of the prestigious basement conference rooms at GlueCon.
