We are looking forward to sponsoring and exhibiting at EclipseCon Europe 2018 in Ludwigsburg, Germany · October 23 - 25.
EclipseCon Europe is the Eclipse Foundation’s primary European event designed to create opportunities for the European Eclipse community to learn, explore, share and collaborate on the latest ideas and information about Eclipse and its member companies. Each year we survey the attendees after the conference is over. Satisfaction with the conference continues to be very high, and rising every year.
EclipseCon is all about community. Contributors, adopters, extenders, service providers, consumers and business and research organizations gather to share their expertise and learn from each other. EclipseCon delivers networking opportunities that lead to synergies in the community, as well as opportunities to give and receive help on specific technical issues or to generate business opportunities.
Rudy De Busscher will be speaking at the event on "Secure JAX-RS".
You can read his abstract below:
With the rise of micro-services, REST communication is more popular than ever. But the communication between the different parts must also be performed in a secure way.
First, we need to know if the user or system is allowed to call the JAX-RS endpoint. For this authentication part, self-contained tokens are the best option to not overload any of our services in the system. JWT which contains the authentication but also can contain the authorization info is ideal for this use-case.
And secondly, we need guarantees that the message isn't altered, that we can have message integrity. For that part, we can use signatures as specified in the HTTP signature draft specification.
Besides the concepts, the presentation will use various code examples to show the theory in action.
