Speaker: Carson Anderson - Weave
Have you ever wondered what it would take to add distributed auth to your Go applications? How do you handle validation and keep your code clean and manageable? How do you pass and use that token for downstream services over different protocols?
This talk will focus on the basics of implementing JWT authentication in Go. This means implementing a basic login flow as well as illustrate how to accept tokens in a frontend service and pass them all the way down to backend gRPC services.
This is an introductory-level talk and will cover the basics of JWT tokens so no previous JWT experience is required.
