.NET South East - Authentication + Authorisation in ASP.NET Core

Authentication and Authorisation in ASP.NET Core

Description:

With all the authentication and authorisation options in ASP.NET we had in the past it's hard to determine how to secure your app nowadays. On top of that Microsoft completely re-did a large part of the security features in ASP.NET Core.

ASP.NET Identity enables you to do authentication for a single application and has a lot of ready-to-go features, but isn't it better to do centralized authentication with a token service using OpenId Connect? We'll explore that question and I'll explain and show you both ASP.NET Core identity, cloud options and the IdentityServer framework that helps you write a token service.
Authorisation has undergone a complete overhaul in ASP.NET Core. There's still the authorize attribute, but the recommended way of using it is by utilizing policies. You'll see how that works as well.

After this session you'll know what options you have for implementing authentication in ASP.NET Core. And you will understand how to implement these options. Also you'll know how to enforce authorisation rules in your ASP.NET Core app.

Make your millions with Laravel (maybe)!

Let's celebrate the height of summer, and the dream of spending the whole day sitting on the deck of your yacht, instead of dashing out to cram a beer and a bite, before rushing back to the office with indigestion and sunburn.

Yes friends, this month is "start-up chat", with a tinge of "could we do that in Laravel?". Bring your ideas, and a positive mental attitude, and we'll discuss them all over a pint, along with some of the practicalities and experiences we've all had in the world of small (and large) software businesses.

All levels welcome from super-pro "I don't work anymore because my Laravel bot makes me a grand an hour" to just interested code-for-fun amateurs.

See you there ( hopefully :0 )

Location: Usual table. Head in, left around the bar, turn left, and we'll be somewhere on the right (weather dependent, I'll try to find an alternative outside venue and update you all nearer the time).

p.s. All topics open for discussion, this is just a guide to get us started.

Brighton Java: "Stupid Java"

An evening devoted to Java quirks. You know, the sort of things that usually only turn up in badly-planned technical interviews. We'll see who can guess the way bits of code behave, and look at what the samples tell us about the language and the JVM. We'll also have short spots for anyone who has horror stories of bugs they've seen in the wild. You'll come out of this session with some deep Java knowledge that has no practical application. Although we will also have a brief look at what's coming in Java 12, which *will* be useful.

The session is aimed at beginner to intermediate developers (experts are welcome too, but you might need to help us explain things). If you have any questions, please get in touch.

If no spaces are available, please add yourself to the waitlist as we might be able to move to a larger venue.

We are currently looking for sponsors for this event. If your company is interested, please get in touch.

This is an interactive session which will be run by James Burt from RiddleFox software.

Brighton Web Dev Meetup: The essential DevOps kitbag

"Why microservices fail. The essential DevOps kitbag"

By Steve Ross-Talbot

In this talk, Steve will examine some of the reasons why micro services deliver well early on and then fray at the edges and start to fail as we scale. The birth of micro services was arguably from observations that James Lewis made about how we deliver business value and at what granularity. Those observations have led to much faster CDCI pipelines into cloud native execution environments and blurred the distinction between production and pre-production environments. In looking at why micro services fail we shall mitigate the failure modes by the use of technology and the reshaping of organisational structures to ensure we can scale. Inevitably it leads to some of the essential tooling and processes that should be in the DevOps kitbag.

Bio
Steve Ross-Talbot is a professor of Distributed Computing at Kingston University in London. He is an Hon. Research Fellow at Napier University in Edinburgh. He is also an author of the SOA Manifesto and a former chair of all the Web Services standards in W3C. He is co-founder of the Zero Deviation Lifecycle (ZDLC) having been the CEO and CSO of the ZDLC Business Unit in Cognizant. Amongst his previous exploits are project Hoodini at Nomura, the founder of SpiritSoft and the first commercial Java Messaging System (JMS) and Complex Event Processing (CEP) systems, as well as speaking at conferences about distributed systems design and microservuces. Steve is currently a technology strategy consultant for many large international banking clients.

Doors open at the Skiff at 6:30pm and the presentation will start at 7pm.

We will be having half-time pizzas and beers/refreshments as usual.

We hope to see you there.
