JavaScript Cloud Native Development Cookbook

By: John Gilbert

Overview of this book

Cloud-native development is a modern approach to building and running applications that leverages the merits of the cloud computing model. With cloud-native development, teams can deliver faster and in a more lean and agile manner as compared to traditional approaches. This recipe-based guide provides quick solutions for your cloud-native applications. Beginning with a brief introduction, JavaScript Cloud-Native Development Cookbook guides you in building and deploying serverless, event-driven, cloud-native microservices on AWS with Node.js. You'll then move on to the fundamental patterns of developing autonomous cloud-native services and understand the tools and techniques involved in creating globally scalable, highly available, and resilient cloud-native applications. The book also covers multi-regional deployments and leveraging the edge of the cloud to maximize responsiveness, resilience, and elasticity. In the latter chapters you'll explore techniques for building fully automated, continuous deployment pipelines and gain insights into polyglot cloud-native development on popular cloud platforms such as Azure and Google Cloud Platform (GCP). By the end of the book, you'll be able to apply these skills to build powerful cloud-native solutions.

Securing an API Gateway with OpenID Connect

One of the advantages of using an API Gateway is that we are pushing security concerns, such as authorization, to the perimeter of our system and away from our internal resources. This simplifies the internal code and improves scalability. In this recipe, we will configure an AWS API Gateway to authorize against an AWS Cognito user pool.

Getting ready

You will need the Cognito user pool created in the Creating a federated identity pool recipe and the sample application created in the Implementing sign up, sign in, and sign out recipe to create the identity token used in this recipe.
