Get to grips with identity patterns and design a structured enterprise identity model for cloud applications

Key Features

  • Learn all you need to know about different identity patterns and implementing them in real-world scenarios
  • Handle multi-IDP-related common situations no matter how big your organization
  • Gain practical insights into OAuth implementation patterns and flows

Book Description

Identity is paramount for every architecture design, making it crucial for enterprise and solutions architects to understand the benefits and pitfalls of implementing identity patterns. However, information on cloud identity patterns is generally scattered across different sources and rarely approached from an architect’s perspective, and this is what Cloud Identity Patterns and Strategies aims to solve, empowering solutions architects to take an active part in implementing identity solutions.

Throughout this book, you’ll cover various theoretical topics along with practical examples that follow the implementation of a standard de facto identity provider (IdP) in an enterprise, such as Azure Active Directory. As you progress through the chapters, you’ll explore the different factors that contribute to an enterprise’s current status quo around identities and harness modern authentication approaches to meet specific requirements of an enterprise. You’ll also be able to make sense of how modern application designs are impacted by the company’s choices and move on to recognize how a healthy organization tackles identity and critical tasks that the development teams pivot on.

By the end of this book, you’ll be able to breeze through creating portable, robust, and reliable applications that can interact with each other.
