Join us for a talk from Steve Riesenberg from the Spring Security team!

Note: Moving to a Tuesday for this month to fit a few schedules - and location at DevObsessed

Building Modern Apps with OAuth2 and Spring

Have you ever been so excited to start building a shiny new application, only to lose momentum when adding security to your project? Have you ever wondered how to build application architectures that are secure from the start? Are you using Spring, but not quite sure which projects to reach for first and how they all fit together?

In this talk, we will examine a modern application architecture including multiple secured microservices, and see how various Spring projects come together to make this work. We will learn how OAuth2 fits seamlessly into this architecture to create modern applications that are resilient, adaptable and production-ready. We will also explore using Spring Boot’s OAuth2 Authorization Server support to standardize our OAuth2 configuration while providing the flexibility to connect to multiple third party identity providers.

Steve Riesenberg is a Software Engineer at VMware where he works on the Spring Security team, contributing to Spring Security’s OAuth support as well as the Spring Authorization Server.

His interests are in security, distributed systems, messaging, web development, FinTech, and JVM languages such as Kotlin. He contributes occasionally in the ZeroMQ community and dabbles in home automation.

He has extensive experience developing security solutions and APIs for online banking platforms, and has worked to deploy numerous online and mobile banking systems. He enjoys working with large teams of various skill-sets and loves thinking through the user experience from the UI to the mainframe (and back again).
