Introduction to OpenID Connect and IdentityServer
Thu 17 November 2016, 19:00 – 21:00 GMT
As software developers we work in one of the most rapidly changing industries available, and in recent years this has been doubly true when we talk about security. Nowadays we have to accommodate for a variety of client applications, hosted on any device and anywhere in the world, and this means we must take a closer look at how we handle authentication and authorization when dealing with our protected resources.
In this talk we'll be looking at the basics of claims-based identity and access control, OAuth and OpenID Connect, and how IdentityServer can simplify all of this for you.
I am a Senior Software Engineer at Rock Solid Knowledge. We offer software development consultancy, development and training services with myself specialising in all things Identity Server.
I work predominantly in C# back-end and middleware systems with the beginnings of a specialisation in web security. I have had a focus on cloud computing since my MSc dissertation in 2013, gaining experience using various cloud based PaaS and IaaS offerings ever since.
