Abstract

From web applications to APIs, desktop to mobile apps, and everything in between there has never been a better or more complex time to write code. When it comes to securing the various types of applications you may be wondering what the right approach is. It may seem that with each new architecture, the rules of security get rewritten. JSON Web Tokens, Open ID, Authentication Flows, Oh My! In this talk, we'll look at and demystify common security patterns for various types of modern app architectures.
