Developer Workshop Part 3: Secure Your APIs with OAuth

June 10, 2021

App developers must now provide seamless experiences across every new digital touch point in the expanding universe of connected devices.

In our third and final session, you’ll learn how to do just this by using OAuth 2.0 to secure access to your APIs. The OAuth framework and its extensions provide a lot of different knobs and dials to make it work exactly as you’d like.

We’ll look at how to use JWT access tokens, as well as the tradeoffs that come with them. We’ll look at how to design scopes that allow granular access to various parts of your backend services. We’ll also look at how to design a microservices architecture protected by OAuth access tokens at a gateway.
