Practical Auth in a Serverless World

Andreas Grimm

To stay competitive, knowing how to efficiently and easily apply security and auth while being aware of the most common pitfalls is key in today’s serverless world.  Traditional machine-to-machine auth approaches where you can rely on a stateful environment fall short in a modern serverless and thus stateless world.

In this talk, you’ll learn how to efficiently apply authentication to Azure Functions without compromising security – using an external Identity Provider like Auth0, OAuth 2, JWT, the secrets management system Azure Key Vault, Azure Managed Identities and Cloudflare Workers.

Objective of the talk

Learning how to practically improve the security of modern, serverless web applications and services.

Required audience experience

Knowledge of OAuth 2 and JWT is helpful.
