Authentication is a core piece of many applications. It has traditionally been handled in a monolithic manner; However, the age of the monolith is over. Moving to microservices means applications now need to decouple authentication, user management and user data. To accomplish this, a portable identity model is required. Brian Pontarelli will discuss the advantages of a microservice architecture, the basics of authentication and authorization as a microservice, the most common pitfalls when deploying microservices, and JWT revocation to ensure you leave ready to take down the monolith. The goal is to allow developers to primarily focus on code and move away from infrastructure concerns.
