Presentation: "Building OAuth2-Enabled, Multi-Tenant Applications with Spring Security"

Time: Monday 15:30 - 16:30

Location: Robinson/Whitman

With more and more companies deciding to deploy multi-tenant applications in the cloud, security considerations are a must. These considerations are further complicated by the growing demand to support third party mobile development on these applications. In this presentation, we will discuss how to design for authentication and authorization of multi-tenant cloud applications. We will also discuss how OAuth 2.0 works and how it can be leveraged to securely support third party development. These concepts will be solidified throughout the presentation by updating an existing application to support multi-tenancy and OAuth 2.0 using Spring Security.
