Death to cookies, long live JSON Web Tokens

A session at JSConfUY 2014

Saturday 15th March, 2014

3:55pm to 4:25pm (MMT)

Cookies have been around for decades, since the Netscape Navigator era. Nobody questions the usefulness of them. But in the last couple of years, we started dealing with XSRF, CORS, native mobile applications, single page applications, real time web and suddenly cookies didn't fit so well. In this session we will propose an alternative solution for authentication and authorization based on an emerging standard called JSON Web Tokens. We will analyze how to use this architecture in the context of an AngularJs app with and node.js API, its benefits and how to deal with all the corner cases.
