Title: Identity 101: How Username/Password Got So Complicated

Abstract: Taking your first step beyond the default username and password based authentication offered by a full stack web application framework can be overwhelming. Social logins, Identity Providers, OAuth 2.0, LDAP, SAML, OpenId Connect; all can be confusing. What does it all mean? How did we get here? By the end of this session, you will have a good understanding of each of these ideas, how they work and when it is appropriate to use them.
