Authorization in a Service-Oriented Environment

A session at RailsConf 2014

Wednesday 23rd April, 2014

5:20pm to 6:00pm (CST)

In a SOA environment users can interact with multiple parts of your system, and the rules for authorization become dispersed across applications. The task of maintaining rules becomes complex. The challenge compounds further in a heterogeneous environment, with services built in different languages. In this talk, I focus on the topic of authorization, specifically how we can scale and grow our services with confidence. I’ll walk through a new framework we've developed to approach this problem.
