Application Security Architect


ASP.NET Core is here and this means you now have a fundamentally new architecture for authenticating users. This session explores what that means for your application design. This session will first look at the simple authentication scenarios, such as using a traditional password for authentication and then using external social media identity providers for single sign-on. It will also discuss why these simple approaches are not typically sufficient and why introducing your own single sign-on provider is important to your application architecture.

You will learn:

  • About authenticating users with middleware
  • About supporting external authentication
  • About designing for single sign-on
