Talk at PHPBenelux Conference 2019 (English - US)

Rating: 4 of 5

When we are asked to identify ourselves in the real world, we show our ID cards. We trust it because it is issued by the government. Can we build a digital ID card based on the same principes, that we can use to authenticate users in our applications instead of relying on cookies and sessions?

Spoiler alert; we’ll talk about micro services, cryptography, JSON Web Tokens and OAuth2.

I did not know about JWT before attending your talk, thanks for the introduction.

Not really what I expected, but that's probably to do with my expectations and not necessarily with the talk itself. The info about JWT was good, and the possible use cases are also very interesting.

Interesting talk that was brought in a fun way. By telling a story around it you had the audience immediately with you. The presentation had a clear structure and was brought in a very understandable way. Top!
