Distributed Application Development Training: Approaches for User Authentication
During this session, we review various approaches to storing and using authentication data in distributed applications. Moving from the simplest to the most complex models, we consider the pros and cons of each approach. We give special attention to one of the most popular approaches to distributed sessions—single sign-on.
As an example, we consider a secured GridGain cluster and its monitoring tool—Control Center. We see how to integrate GridGain and Control Center with various OpenID Connect providers, and learn about the advantages that such a setup offers.
