OAuth 2.0 Cookbook

By: Adolfo Eloy Nascimento

Overview of this book

OAuth 2.0 is a standard protocol for authorization and focuses on client development simplicity while providing specific authorization flows for web applications, desktop applications, mobile phones, and so on. This book also provides useful recipes for solving real-life problems using Spring Security and creating Android applications. The book starts by presenting you how to interact with some public OAuth 2.0 protected APIs such as Facebook, LinkedIn and Google. You will also be able to implement your own OAuth 2.0 provider with Spring Security OAuth2. Next, the book will cover practical scenarios regarding some important OAuth 2.0 profiles such as Dynamic Client Registration, Token Introspection and how to revoke issued access tokens. You will then be introduced to the usage of JWT, OpenID Connect, and how to safely implement native mobile OAuth 2.0 Clients. By the end of this book, you will be able to ensure that both the server and client are protected against common vulnerabilities.

Using Gatling to load test remote token validation

The previous recipe, presented how to improve the performance by using cache. But although everything is working fine, how can we measure the gaining performance from cache usage? This recipe will present you an execution of a Gatling project to measure the token validation process with and without cache.

Getting ready

To run this recipe, you will need the remote-authserver,remote-resource and cache-introspectionapplicationscreated for the previous two recipes. At first, we will run the load test against remote-authserver and remote-resource. And to measure the cache advantages, we will run the same load test against the remote-authserver and cache-introspection applications. To edit the load test scripts, you need Scala IDE for Eclipse (if you don't know how to configure and use Scala IDE for Eclipse, you can check the Using Gatling to load test the token validation process using shared databasesrecipe from Chapter 2,Implementing Your Own...
