Course Overview
Hi everyone. My name is Justin Boyer, and welcome to my course, Understanding OAuth with Node.js. If you've ever used the Log in with Google button on a website, you've used OAuth, but how would a business-to-business application work with OAuth? In this course, we're going to build a realistic business application that uses OAuth to share data. We'll be using a scenario that will become more likely as OAuth adoption increases. Some of the major topics that we will cover include how an OAuth application functions under the hood; how to build an OAuth client, protected resource, and authorization server in Node.js ; and what security vulnerabilities might arise and how to fix them. By the end of this course, you'll be able to build OAuth functionality into your existing Node.js application or build an OAuth ready web service from scratch. Before beginning the course, you should be familiar with the OAuth 2.0 protocol. You should also know how to build a Node.js web application using Express.js. I hope you'll join me on this journey and learn how to share data between web services with the understanding OAuth and Node.js course at Pluralsight.
