Want to make the switch to token authentication, but don’t know how? A what the heck is OAuth, anyway? In this talk, Nate Barbettini, .NET Developer Evangelist at Stormpath, will demystify token authentication and cover topics such as: - What is OAuth? - OAuth2 tokens and grant types - How to use cookies the right way - Why JWTs make great OAuth2.0 tokens - Protecting against XSS (cross-site scripting) attacks - Protecting against CSRF (cross-site request forgery) attacks You’ll learn how to use OAuth2.0 and signed JWTs to create a scalable and secure authentication and authorization layer for your application. Nate will demonstrate these points with a simple single-page application built with ASP.NET and Web API.
