Overview of this book

Spring Security enables developers to seamlessly integrate authorization, authentication, and a range of security features for complex enterprise applications. This book provides a hands-on approach to developing reactive applications using Spring and will help you get up and running in no time. Complete with step-by-step explanations, practical examples, and self-assessment questions, the book begins by explaining the essential concepts of reactive programming, Spring Framework, and Spring Security. You’ll then learn about a variety of authentication mechanisms and how to integrate them easily with a Spring MVC application. You’ll also understand how to achieve authorization in a Spring WebFlux application using Spring Security. Furthermore, the book will take you through the configuration required to implement OAuth2 for securing REST APIs, and guide you in integrating security in microservices and serverless applications.

OAuth2 and Spring WebFlux

Full-fledged OAuth2 support for a Spring WebFlux application is not available in Spring Security at the time of writing this book. However, there is a community urgency around this and many things are slowly and steadily getting into Spring Security in this regard. Many examples are also getting baked into the Spring Security project that show OAuth2 with Spring WebFlux. In the Chapter 5, Integrating with Spring WebFlux, we saw one such example in detail. As of writing this book, Spring Security OAuth2 has a hard dependency on Spring MVC.
