Proven Interactive Workshop with Labs and Discussions

Building secure APIs and microservices is hard, really hard. Not only do you have to make the right architectural security decisions, you also have to be aware of various implementation vulnerabilities to ensure the security of your applications. This workshop provides API developers with the necessary knowledge to assess and improve the security of their APIs.


Didactic Approach

With a mix of lectures, demos, quizzes, and hands-on labs, participants discover best practices for building secure APIs. We investigate various techniques to implement authentication and authorization, along with their trade-offs and pitfalls. We dive deep into handling JSON Web Tokens, but also discuss the relevance of browser security features such as Cross-Origin Resource Sharing. Additionally, we discuss current best practices for securing an API with OAuth 2.0.


Learning Goal

This workshop offers practical and immediately applicable security advice for API developers. Throughout the workshop, Philippe is available to answer any questions, including concrete scenarios applying to your own applications.


Code Examples

Code examples and demos often use NodeJS and Spring Boot, but are easy to translate to other languages and frameworks.
