Identity and Access Control for Modern Applications and APIs using ASP.NET Core

Modern application design has changed quite a bit in recent years. “Mobile-first” and “cloud-ready” are the types of applications you are expected to develop. Also, to keep pace with these demands, Microsoft has revamped their complete web stack with ASP.NET Core to meet these architectural demands.

Needless to say, you also have to secure these apps.

Multi-platform, multi-client, and highly-mobile users bring a new set of challenges, so the approaches of the past are no longer appropriate for modern applications. This three-day workshop is your chance to dive into all things security related to these new technologies. Learn how to securely connect native and browser-based applications to your back-ends and integrate them with enterprise identity management systems as well as social identity providers and services.

This workshop covers everything you need to know to build modern and secure web, native & mobile applications. The foundation will be Microsoft’s latest technology stack, but will also include IdentityServer4, which is the officially recommended framework for building token services.

This workshop can be delivered onsite (contact us for more info), and publicly as listed below.
