Deploy OpenID Connect and OAuth 2.0 with a Reverse Proxy Architecture
This session will present architectural patterns for integrating support for OpenID Connect and OAuth 2.0 into your service infrastructure using a reverse proxy (RP). We will go over a number of options for doing so and highlight advantages and disadvantages of outsourcing authentication and authorization functionality to a RP in a pattern similar to offloading SSL to a (or the same) RP.It will describe how a reverse proxy may be configured and deployed to handle OpenID Connect Relying Party functionality to sign on users to browser-facing services using a standardized federated SSO Protocol. In addition it will provide detail on deploying OAuth 2.0 Resource Server functionality as part of a reverse proxy in front of REST based APIs. It will then present options on how applications and APIs can consume the information that is processed by the RP sitting in front of the protected resources in a secure way.We will also take a deeper look at implementation options using Apache HTTPd with mod_auth_openidc and NGINX with the lua-resty-openidc plugin as well as a brief overview of the implemenation of this pattern into the Amazone Application Load Balancer (ALB) service.
