This chapter introduced you to some of the other capabilities of Spring Security that can be used in your application. Using examples, we covered how to achieve remember-me functionality in your application. We also touched briefly upon concepts such as CSRF, CORS, CSP, channel security, and session management. We also covered the Crypto module in Spring Security concisely.

We wrapped up the chapter by introducing two products that can work along with Spring Security—HashiCorp Vault (for secret management) and HDIV (for additional security features).



After reading this chapter, you should have a clear understanding of some of the additional features that can be implemented using Spring Security.
