As a quick follow up to my blog post earlier this week How to Develop and Expose APIs Using Go this post explains how to protect those APIs using ForgeRock’s Identity Platform. I cover setting up the OAuth 2.0 Authorization Service in AM (Access Manager) as well as using IG (Identity Gateway) as the resource […]
With the help of just a few additional packages I am able to quickly create a base set of APIs. I’ll go through the core aspects of this as well as include a video walk-through. This application is pretty simple with a MySQL database backend and a Go application as the middle-layer. In the attached video I step through how I setup the database and the go source code to create a set of APIs to interact with the MySQL backend.
I won’t attempt to predict what 2021 will look, especially have the year that we just had. Instead I’d like to talk about several things that we’ll be focusing on and that I believe everyone in the identity space should be focused on. As we dive into 2021 we are seeing a wave of changes […]
A lot has changed in the ForgeRock DevOps space since I last wrote a blog post about setting up ForgeRock in Docker containers (way back in 2016). ForgeRock has since integrated with Kubernetes and has instructions for deploying to local development environments and to Google and Amazon cloud environments. Here’s a quick and dirty set […]
Deploying services with Docker has become pretty popular in the DevOps world (understatement). I want to demonstrate how to deploy an instance of ForgeRock’s OpenAM and OpenDJ using Docker. Essentially this is my ForgeRock Docker Cheat Sheet Setup: I am running this on a virtual Ubuntu instance in Virtualbox on my laptop. You can run […]
A quick demo of OpenAM’s Token Translation Service According to Wikipedia: In a typical usage scenario, a client requests access to a secure software application, often called a relying party. Instead of the application authenticating the client, the client is redirected to an STS. The STS authenticates the client and issues a security token. Finally, […]
ok guys … ForgeRock released updates across the board today: Access Management – AM 13 Identity Management – IDM 4 Directory Services – DJ 3 Identity Gateway – IG 4 I have only had a chance to go through the OpenAM release notes … and this is a big release for OpenAM. Clearly a ton […]
As you probably know ForgeRock’s OpenAM Access Manager (AM) supports OAuth2 out of the box. Great but you may be asking, “what is OAuth2?”. OAuth2 is an authorization framework that can be used to allow a resource owner (typically the end user) to grant access (authorization) to a third-party (client). You’ve used OAuth when you logged into […]
