OAuth 2.0 and OpenID Connect architectures
In this session, we explore what OAuth 2.0 and OpenID Connect have to offer. We also investigate how to leverage these technologies to build a modern and secure application architecture.

OAuth 2.0 and OpenID Connect (OIDC) have become fundamental building blocks of modern application architectures. Unfortunately, architects and developers often lack a solid understanding of these technologies, current best practices, and recommended use cases, resulting in overly complex or insecure applications.
In this session, we start with a brief overview of what OAuth 2.0 and OIDC offer. With that knowledge, we look into concrete application architectures that leverage OAuth 2.0 and OIDC for security. In the end, you will be able to apply this knowledge to your applications.
