Token Authentication for Java Applications

Everyone building a web application that supports user login is concerned with security. How do you securely authenticate users and keep their identity secure? With the huge growth in Single Page Applications (SPAs), JavaScript and mobile applications, how do you keep users safe even though these are 'unsafe' client environments?

In this presentation given at the SF Java User Group, Les Hazlewod will demystify HTTP Authentication and explain how the Next Big Thing - Token Authentication - can be used to secure web applications on the JVM, REST APIs, and 'unsafe' clients while supporting security best practices and even improving your application's performance and scale.
