Demystifying AuthN/AuthZ Using OIDC/OAuth2


For some, security is an afterthought in API development, yet choosing the right authentication (AuthN) and authorization (AuthZ) options is more critical than ever for the digital security of a business. Many organizations are adopting the OpenID Connect (OIDC) and OAuth 2.0 (OAuth2) standards for authentication and authorization respectively.

Join Rajesh Bavanantham to explore use cases and appropriate API security patterns behind using OIDC/OAuth2. Both frameworks offer multiple ways to secure your APIs, so it is important to understand where to apply the different OIDC/OAuth2 deployment patterns. Rajesh also discusses different types of authorization (fine/finer/finest) and the nuances of using token-based authorization to protect your API assets.

In this webinar, we’ll cover:
