Everything You Ever Wanted to Know about Node Authentication

Want to build secure web applications with Node.js? This session will cover everything you've ever wanted to know about authentication with Node.js.

About This Session

Authentication is one of the least understood areas in web development -- and there’s a lot to know: how cookies and sessions work, how to properly encrypt user sessions, how to safely log users in and out of a web application, which libraries to use, etc. In this talk, you will learn how to safely log users into web applications, secure REST APIs, the low-level details that make this possible, and which Node libraries you should be using (and where). He will cover: - How HTTP authentication works (form based and API based). - What are cookies, and how do they work? - How do sessions work? - What is the best way to store user state in Node applications? - What sort of encryption should be used to secure client-side cookies? - Where does SSL fit into the picture? - How does HTTP basic authentication work? - How can you keep your cache secure? - What libraries are useful?
