Use Kong Gateway to Centralize Authentication

avatar-dogeared.jpg Micah Silverman

A customer once asked me: “Hey – Can Okta integrate with Kong?” My first thought was: “What’s Kong?” A Google result later, I was introduced to the Kong API Gateway – an open-source API Gateway and Microservices management layer. Spoiler alert: You totally can integrate Kong with Okta using its OpenID Connect plugin. Still stuck wondering what an API gateway even is? Here’s a metaphor that works for me: You know that sci-fi movie trope...

Three Developer Tools I'm Thankful For

avatar-rdegges.jpg Randall Degges

I’ve been writing code since I was 12 years old. When I first got started, I was using an old MSDOS computer that was given to my family by a member of our church. I’ve always been really thankful that person gave my family a computer, as without it, I doubt I’d be the person I am today. Each year around Thanksgiving time I always try to sit back, relax, and think about how thankful...

What does it take to build a successful mobile application in today’s ever-changing market? There are (what seems like an infinite) number of design, build, and test cycles performed, just to release your app into the hands of a user. In essence: while Users.love != true { Product.design() Product.rebuild() } Once completed, the real challenge begins – retaining those users. Mostly that means getting users to log in to your app easily, and then never...

avatar-matt_raible.jpg Matt Raible

I’ve fallen in love with Play Framework in the past, but then found a more attractive framework in Spring Boot. I fell in love partly because Play was new and sexy at the time, but also because it’s “live reloading” of Java code was a killer feature I’d been looking for. When it added support for Scala in v2.0, I was very excited to learn Scala and discover the power of functional programming. Part of...

Secure your SPA with Spring Boot and OAuth

avatar-bdemers.jpg Brian Demers

If you have a JavaScript single-page application (SPA) that needs to securely access resources from a Spring Boot application, you likely want to use the OAuth 2.0 implicit flow! With this flow your client will send a bearer token with each request and your server side application will verify the token with an Identity Provider (IdP). This allows your resource server to trust that your client is authorized to make the request. In OAuth terms...

Play Zork, Learn OAuth

avatar-dogeared.jpg Micah Silverman

In the early ‘80s, some of the best “video” games were text-based adventures. These games would print out descriptive text of your surroundings and you would interact with the game using simple, but natural language commands like: “go north” or “take sword”. Fast forward some 30 years and a specification for an authorization framework called OAuth 2.0 was published. This framework allows an application to receive a token from an external party (like Okta) that...

Use OpenID Connect Support with JHipster

avatar-matt_raible.jpg Matt Raible

Single sign-on (SSO) is a feature that most developers don’t care about when building one-off applications for clients or themselves. However, when developing apps for their company, which will be used by employees of their business, they often need to hook into an existing identity provider. It might be Active Directory (AD), LDAP, or a myriad of other systems. Okta provides SSO for many companies around the world and allows them to configure AD and...
