Software security is hard. Software security in Microservice Systems is even harder. Microservice-style software architectures have steadily been gaining popularity in recent years. They offer many benefits over traditional monolithic software products, however they also introduce new challenges - one of these being security.

In recent years David has worked on this problem in several independent projects, and this talk will draw on his learnings within the topic of authenticating end-users. David will describe, compare and evaluate several authentication options from the perspective of how secure they are and how well they comply with the qualities of a well-designed microservice system. You will leave the talk with suggested evaluation criteria and guidance for implementation based on their use cases.
