In a world of light-weight and cross-platform apps, devices and services we need technologies that work well on arbitrary devices and that allow us implementing our security requirements in an interoperable and manageable way. OAuth2, OpenID Connect and JWT are the replacements for the "old-school" protocols we used to build distributed security architectures with like Kerberos, WS-Trust, WS-Federation and SAML.
What are OAuth2, OpenID Connect, and JSON Web Tokens (JWT) used for?
One thing that both OAuth2 and OpenID have in common is that they're dealing with security tokens. The standard today when building new apps is called the JSON Web Token which is a security token format. These three technologies work together and build the security foundation for writing modern applications.
What will I learn in this course?
You will learn here these technologies are actually used and how they build the new security stack for modern applications.
