Remember that time where setting up a login page was easy? It seems like nowadays, it take many weeks to start a project just to create a signup form, a login form and a forget password screen. And that is if you don’t need 2 factor authentication or passwordless authentication. In a world of security breaches and privacy violations, it is important for developers to understand how modern identity work.
This talk will be in two parts.
For starters, the attendees will be introduced to modern security protocols like OpenID Connect and OAuth. The basics of token authentication will be explained using simple examples that are easy to understand. The concept of tokens will also be explained, more specifically how JWTs work.
In the second part of this presentation, the attendees will learn how to implement their own authentication server, how to secure their APIs and how to protect their Single Page Applications by making use of the protocols described in the first part.
Finally, the presenter will show the participants how to add Auth0 as an authentication server with minimal code changes and will demonstrate the simplicity of using a third party to handle login, signups, lost password as well as 2 factor authentication or passwordless logins.
