In microservice architectures the authentification and authorization of users can be a difficult problem. In a monolith the authentication of a user happens in the same execution context as the rest of the program. This is mostly not the case when using microservices. In order to avoid strong coupling of all microservices to a single authentication service or having to distribute the authentication information throughout all microservices new ideas are needed. JWT-Tokens try to solve this issue with a simple public key cryptography the user data can easily be authorized by the Authentification service and be trusted and checked by all other microservices without the need of further calls to the authentification service.
This talk will introduce the concept of JWT-Tokens and show some examples of how we use this in our application.
