There is parking available at the rear of County Gates House, controlled by a security gate. We can't guarantee availability of parking at this location (because reception would quite like to go home instead of manning the intercom...), so if no one answers, there is parking available on Milburn Road (2 minute walk).
The main office building will be closing down by the time most people arrive, so please use the entrance on Princess Road (via the car park) as opposed to the main entrance.

SPA Identity & Access Control with OpenID Connect & IdentityServer 4 by Scott Brady
As software developers, we work in one of the most rapidly changing industries available, and in recent years this has been doubly true when we talk about security. Nowadays we have to accommodate a variety of client applications, hosted on any device, anywhere in the world and this means we must take a closer look at how we handle authentication and authorization when dealing with our protected resources.
In this talk, we’ll take a look at how Single Page Applications, running on a user’s browser, can use OpenID Connect for authentication and OAuth to gain access to data from an API. This will include the limitations of working with the unique security profile of a client side web application, and the measures we must take to secure our data. Once we have covered the basic theory behind identity and access control, OAuth, and OpenID Connect, we will implement IdentityServer 4 as our OpenID Connect Provider and use it to authenticate users for an Angular 4 SPA and authorize access to a ASP.Net Core API.
Scott Brady is the Identity & Access Control Lead at Rock Solid Knowledge, a Pluralsight Author, and Speaker. He specialises in IdentityServer and all things Identity, OAuth, and OpenID Connect. He's also a big fan of Azure.
Scott works mainly with C# and ASP.NET Core, creating identity solutions for both external customers and for commercial IdentityServer products. When not working with these technologies he dabbles with languages such as Kotlin, Python, and Typescript.
