Stateless Microservice Security via MicroProfile JWT

Microservices based architecture seems to be the common convergence point in the industry. But when it comes to security we are still struggling to evolve from monolithic systems or people oriented architecture.

This presentation will be focusing on this landscape and explain how to leverage the quickly evolving MicroProfile JWT specification to secure Microservices and in a fully stateless and scalable manner. We’ll introduce the specification in a quick and no nonsense fashion and move on to several code examples that show how to setup JWT verification and obtain trusted claims via lookup or dependency injection. For our playground, we’ll be using Apache TomEE, fully open source lightweight Java EE server and MicroProfile implementation.
