Microservices present a new way of scaling API deployments, where each component is an island, performing a small but well defined task. These systems are quicker to develop and allow for a more agile way of working. As in most designs, security is not part of the original blueprint, which can lead to expensive and hard to manage security solutions. In this talk, Travis Spencer will illustrate how OAuth and OpenID Connect can be leveraged to created a unified distributed framework for Microservices. He will show how this can be used to deliver Microservices’ promise of agility and scalability while also ensuring security.
