Webinar | Introduction to OpenID-Connect for .NET developers

Token-based security is an area that can be experienced as complex with its many different standards and concepts. In this seminar, I will introduce what OpenID-Connect is all about and demonstrate on an overall level how this can be applied in an ASP.NET Core environment.

Why have I snowballed into this particular topic?

In the past, this with authentication and authorization in .NET has always felt very abstract and magical. So over a year ago I decided to try to understand this for real, and therefore I now want to share what I learned during this trip!

The seminar is divided into two parts:

PART 1: Introduction to OAuth / OpenID-connect
[Tuesday 18 May at 12.00 - 13.00]

Here we will focus on what OAuth / OpenID-Connect is and how tokens can protect our systems. Among other things, we will address:

  • Where are our security challenges in a modern architecture?
  • Why do we need OAuth / OpenID-Connect?
  • What are tokens and what are the different tokens?
  • What are Scopes and Claims?
  • What feeds are there in OpenID-Connect?

PART 2: OpenID-connect and ASP.NET Core
[Wednesday 19 May at 12.00 - 13.00]

In this part, we look at how we can apply OpenID-Connect in an ASP.NET Core environment and together with IdentityServer secure an MVC application and an API. We address, among other things:

  • How is authentication and authorization implemented in ASP.NET core?
  • How to secure an ASP.NET Core MVC and API application using OpenID-Connect?
  • What is IdentityServer and how can we use it in our architecture?

Each part is about 45-50 minutes, with subsequent question time. The presentation will be in Swedish, but the material is in English.
