As online services and mobile apps take over the world, one of the key challenges facing developers is that of security and identity. How can we trust our users? How can we persuade our users to trust us - and to trust each other? What does it actually mean when you "connect with Facebook" or "log in with Twitter"? How can we deliver great products with great user experience without risking our users' precious data in the process?
In this workshop, we explore various approaches to authentication and ways of verifying your users' identities. We'll look at the practical applications of these techniques.
We'll discuss how patterns like message passing and CQRS can form part of our security strategy. We'll put together some sample applications demonstrating how we can get systems like OpenID, Google, Facebook or Twitter to manage user identity for us, and we'll discover how we can isolate security into a single, reusable module we can re-use across our .NET web applications.
