You have an OAuth server, now what? In this talk, Jacob will illustrate how OAuth and OpenID Connect can be leveraged to deliver agility and scalability while also ensuring security.

Distributed systems bring with them complexities surrounding identity. How should end-user identities be traced and delegated? How can we manage user permissions across groups and in large organizations?

Jacob will explore a standards-based approach using protocols like OAuth and OpenID Connect, highlighting patterns for large scale deployments while keeping things simple. We’ll also see how identity is preserved and utilized within complex software delivery networks like Kubernetes.
