OAuth has become the defacto authorization protocol for web services. This course will teach you how to implement OAuth in your Node.js application safely, so you can give your users the best experience possible while keeping them safe.
What do you do when you need to integrate with a web service? In this course, Understanding OAuth with Node.js, you’ll learn foundational knowledge required to implement OAuth in your Node.js application. First, you’ll explore building an OAuth client. Next, you’ll discover how to create an OAuth protected resource. Finally, you’ll learn how to construct an authorization server. When you’re finished with this course, you’ll have the skills and knowledge of OAuth needed to integrate with and protect web services in Node.js.
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.
