WSO2 API Microgateway with Okta as Key Manager

Wednesday, August 19, 2020

API security is increasingly becoming a vital aspect of modern API-driven, digital transformation business use cases. Implementing a robust security mechanism for APIs is a challenging task which every organization has to undergo when exposing their APIs to the public.

Usually, API management solutions come with their own key management capabilities to handle API security. However, when an organization already has an Identity Provider that is capable of key management, they usually prefer to use the same to handle API security as well. Therefore, an API gateway’s ability to connect to 3rd party Key Managers to handle API security is very important.

By attending this webinar, you will gain hands-on experience on how WSO2 API Microgateway can be leveraged to use 3rd party key management services to secure your microservices.

During the webinar, we will cover:

  • Principles of API security with WSO2 Microgateway
  • API authentication flow in WSO2 Microgateway for both JWT and reference access tokens
  • Configuring Okta as the key manager for WSO2 Microgateway
  • Using Okta and WSO2 API Manager to leverage API authentication with subscription validation
  • Live demo


Recommended for:

  • Architects
  • API Developers
