Spring Security – Third Edition: Secure your web applications, RESTful services, and microservice architectures


Learn how to secure your Java applications from hackers using Spring Security 4.2

About This Book

  • Architect solutions that leverage the full power of Spring Security while remaining loosely coupled.
  • Implement various scenarios such as supporting existing user stores, user sign up, authentication, and supporting AJAX requests,
  • Integrate with popular Microservice and Cloud services such as Zookeeper, Eureka, and Consul, along with advanced techniques, including OAuth, JSON Web Token’s (JWS), Hashing, and encryption algorithms

Who This Book Is For

This book is intended for Java Web and/or RESTful webservice developers and assumes a basic understanding of creating Java 8, Java Web and/or RESTful webservice applications, XML, and the Spring Framework. You are not expected to have any previous experience with Spring Security.

What You Will Learn

  • Understand common security vulnerabilities and how to resolve them
  • Learn to perform initial penetration testing to uncover common security vulnerabilities
  • Implement authentication and authorization
  • Learn to utilize existing corporate infrastructure such as LDAP, Active Directory, Kerberos, CAS, OpenID, and OAuth
  • Integrate with popular frameworks such as Spring, Spring-Boot, Spring-Data, JSF, Vaaden, jQuery, and AngularJS.
  • Gain deep understanding of the security challenges with RESTful webservices and microservice architectures
  • Integrate Spring with other security infrastructure components like LDAP, Apache Directory server and SAML

In Detail

Knowing that experienced hackers are itching to test your skills makes security one of the most difficult and high-pressured concerns of creating an application. The complexity of properly securing an application is compounded when you must also integrate this factor with existing code, new technologies, and other frameworks. Use this book to easily secure your Java application with the tried and trusted Spring Security framework, a powerful and highly customizable authentication and access-control framework.

The book starts by integrating a variety of authentication mechanisms. It then demonstrates how to properly restrict access to your application. It also covers tips on integrating with some of the more popular web frameworks. An example of how Spring Security defends against session fixation, moves into concurrency control, and how you can utilize session management for administrative functions is also included.

It concludes with advanced security scenarios for RESTful webservices and microservices, detailing the issues surrounding stateless authentication, and demonstrates a concise, step-by-step approach to solving those issues. And, by the end of the book, readers can rest assured that integrating version 4.2 of Spring Security will be a seamless endeavor from start to finish.

Style and approach

This practical step-by-step tutorial has plenty of example code coupled with the necessary screenshots and clear narration so that grasping content is made easier and quicker.

Web Development with Go: Building Scalable Web Apps and RESTful Services


Take a deep dive into web development using the Go programming language to build web apps and RESTful services to create reliable and efficient software. Web Development with Go provides Go language fundamentals and then moves on to advanced web development concepts and successful deployment of Go web apps to the cloud. 

Web Development with Go will teach you how to develop scalable real-world web apps, RESTful services, and backend systems with Go. The book starts off by covering Go programming language fundamentals as a prerequisite for web development. After a thorough understanding of the basics, the book delves into web development using the built-in package, net/http. With each chapter you’ll be introduced to new concepts for gradually building a real-world web system. 

The book further shows you how to integrate Go with other technologies. For example, it provides an overview of using MongoDB as a means of persistent storage, and provides an end-to-end REST API sample as well. The book then moves on to demonstrate how to deploy web apps to the cloud using the Google Cloud platform. 

 

Web Development with Go provides:    

  • Fundamentals for building real-world web apps in Go
  • Thorough coverage of prerequisites and practical code examples
  • Demo web apps for attaining a deeper understanding of web development
  • A reference REST API app which can be used to build scalable real-world backend services in Go
  • A thorough demonstration of deploying web apps to the Cloud using the Google Cloud platform

 

Go is a high-performance language while providing greater level of developer productivity, therefore Web Development with Go equips you with the necessary skills and knowledge required for effectively building robust and efficient web apps by leveraging the features of Go.
