Token authentication is a critical element of building scalable identity, authentication, and authorization management. The token-based approach is stateless, secure, mobile-ready, and designed to scale with the size of your user base (without additional burden on your servers).

This Token Authentication webinar from Stormpath’s .NET Evangelist, Nate Barbettini breaks down both token verification and token generation in the new ASP.NET Core stack. He also covers:

  • Sessions vs. tokens
  • Statelessness
  • The anatomy of a JWT
  • Signature cryptography
  • Hosted user identity
