## Modern Identity: How did we get here? - Vittorio Bertocci

Developers approaching identity management today have at their disposal a rich stack of conceptual tools to help them decompose and solve a wide array of scenarios, from web single sign on to delegated authorization, from mobile and IoT scenarios to hybrid solutions where sign on and API seamlessly blend together. OAuth2 and OpenID Connect provide a solid foundation to modern identity, but some of their aspects and terms are at times surprising and seem to make little sense: if I am authenticating my user, why am I required to do an authorization request? Why do I need to call my web application a client, despite of the fact that it is the resource I am gating access to? The answer is in the history that led to the modern protocol to evolve in their current form. Join Vittorio as he turns back time to the early days of authentication and access control, retracing the history of how protocols evolved to address the main challenges of their time and explaining how modern protocols look the way they do.

Vittorio Bertocci is a Principal Architect for Auth0. Before Auth0, Vittorio had a lengthy career with Microsoft, where he helped Fortune 100 and Global 100 companies to solve their identity challenges- first driving identity evangelism for developers, then working on Microsoft’s Azure Active Directory team as principal program manager focusing on the developer experience. He contributed to the inception and design of Microsoft's claims-based platform components (Windows Identity Foundation and ADFS, ADAL and MSAL SDKs, ASP.NET middleware) and to the identity features of Visual Studio, Azure and other products.
Vittorio is a well known speaker, educator and published author. He tweets as @vibronet and blogs on www.cloudidentity.com.
