Course Overview Hi everyone. My name is Bryan Hansen, and welcome to my course, Spring Framework: Authenticating Users with Spring Security. I am the CEO of Complete Programmer and the Practice Director at Software Technology Group. Security is a complex topic, and doing it correctly can be quite challenging. In this updated course, we're going to cover how to authenticate users against LDAP and authorize against a standalone database. We're also going to show you how to customize the Spring Security object to add your own unique fields to it and have it more closely match your application's needs. We're going to show you how to create a custom registration process for Spring Security and also handle the common problem of a forgotten password inside of Spring Security. By the end of this course, you'll know all the fundamentals of Spring Security and how to implement security inside of your Java application. Before beginning the course, you should be familiar with Spring and Spring MVC some. I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn security with the Spring Framework: Authenticating Users with Spring Security course, at Pluralsight.
