Authentication and Authorization in a Cloud and Microservice World

A cloud based, microservice or IoT architecture requires architects and developers to rethink authentication and authorization. It is not feasible to have everyone log in separately for different systems, using a different username and password for each. The goal is to have a single identity that can be authenticated once.

A common approach is to use some sort of single sign-on (SSO) solution. SAML and OpenID Connect both provide capabilities in this area that can be leveraged for the cloud as well as IoT.

This talk will provide you with all you need to reach this goal in all your Java based applications.
