Learn how OpenID Connect and JWTs make your life easy again! - Singapore Identity & Security Meetup

Published on: Wednesday, 26 June 2019

Speaker: Ben Dechrai

The Singapore Identity and Security Meetup is an informal evening open to all. We start with food, drink, and mingling, followed by a talk. The evening ends with an optional networking session at a local venue.

## Talk Abstract
Authentication for a simple site is easy. A user table with permission flags. Add scaling, a service-oriented architecture, and new technology stacks and you quickly introduce complexity. Learn how OpenID Connect and JSON Web Tokens make your life easy again!

This talk includes a history of OAuth and OpenID Connect, describes the login flow, and finished with a quick demo of what it looks like to use an off-the-shelf identity provider.
