Modern Security Architecture with OpenID Connect and OAuth2
Modern applications require modern security and the OpenID Connect and OAuth2 security protocols are designed to meet this need. To achieve a modern security architecture you must use something called a "security token service" that implements these protocols. In this session we will look at how applications are now architected to incorporate and use a token service for authentication thus providing single sign-on. We will also see how this same token service also provides tokens for securing Web APIs. We will be using ASP.NET Core and the popular open source .NET framework "IdentityServer" to illustrate these concepts.
