Auth(thentication|orization) in a RESTful World
Location: Ballroom I Audience level: Novice
I will be unveiling a new github project extracted from the work we did for a customer which required us to break a monolithic RESTful service up into a set of 5 different services. The outcome was a clean, simple way to centrally manage accounts that could be validated across REST services (no browser required) and allow central management of authorizations within each service (who has access to what).
The presentation will include the description of the auth REST service and the auth client plugin for rails which interfaces with it. The auth client also includes the use of RabbitMQ/Minion as a worker architecture to allow asynchronous HTTP communications between services and the ability of services to discover the location of other services within the centrally auth’d cluster.
There will be code in this talk. Yummy code…
