Secure Your Applications with Authentication and Authorization

Authentication and Authorization in Payara Platform

Securing your application is a very important aspect of development.

Secure Your Application with Authentication and Authorization

You not only need to make sure that the application has the intended functionality but also that this functionality can only be executed by the appropriate people.

You not only need to make sure that updates to data are restricted to the correct people, but it is also important that end users only see data they are allowed to see.

And in case of sensitive data, this is even more important.

The definition and configuration of these processes have become easier with the introduction of the Security API in Java EE 8 which is available in Payara Platform 5.

This guide describes concepts such as:

  • HTTP Authentication Mechanism and Identity Store
  • Groups vs. Role
  • OAuth2 and OpenIdConnect
  • Combining the Payara Realms with the Security API
  • Detailed examples for how to use in the Payara Platform
