Application Security with Keycloak & Quarkus

Event Details

From developers, for developers. IBM Developer and Consol present a Cloud Native Story
Part 2 – Application Security with Keycloak and Quarkus: Please do not STATE your Business

Monolithic applications typically hold sessions states. With state-of-the-art technologies like container orchestration and serverless computing, sharing this state over a micro service backend becomes challenging.

An alternative is to not hold the session state in the backend, but in a client-side tokens. One popular standard for this kind of state management is OAuth2. The client-side tokens are JSON Web Tokens (JWT), holding all necessary information defining the sessions. OpenID Connect (OIDC), which is an extension of OAuth2, furthermore provides “social login” capabilities (Login with google, github, facebook,…).

Keycloak is an open-source and verified OAuth2- and OpenID Connect solution from Red Hat. The project is actively maintained. In this talk, we will create a base configuration for keycloak and use Keycloak to secure a Quarkus application.

Topics are:
– Introduction to OAuth2, OIDC and keycloak
– Setting up a base keycloak in docker/k8s
– Configuring keycloak: – Define clients – Define users -Define roles
– Configure Quarkus to use and validate JWT Tokens
– Configure Role-Based Access Control on endpoints
– Access token information within endpoints.

Talk – 45 mins
Q&A – 15 mins
