Implementing the correct security patterns is a common challenge that most application developers and consultants can get wrong in even the most common of scenarios. Reinventing the wheel is a common pattern that DevOps engineers do when integrating security solutions inside their applications (authentication, password validation, identity management, correct storage of user data, etc.). Keycloak is an open-source identity management solution that focuses on offloading this burden from DevOps engineers, allowing them to focus on the business aspects of their applications and simplifying their solutions in the long run.
This talk (see below!) from Fabio Turizo, Senior Engineer at Payara, will focus on the benefits of using such a service with an enterprise application, with a live demonstration of a small application that uses the Eclipse MicroProfile APIs to correctly integrate it with Keycloak by way of the OpenIDConnect standards.
