6:15-7:45: Securing Java Microservices with Java JWT - Micah Silverman

"Microservices are awesome, but they're not free" - Les Hazlewood, CTO Stormpath

In this presentation, Micah Silverman will take you on a token based journey. The talk covers what tokens are, looking at cryptographically signed tokens - JWTs (JSON Web Token), using the JJWT library to create JWTs, mitigating CSRF (Cross Site Request Forgery) attacks using JWTs and establishing trust between microservices using JWTs. There are some slides and lots of code.
