In this post, I show how to secure Spring Boot REST API using Json Web Tokens for authorization. We will also use Spring Security in this tutorial.
In this post, I will show how to secure your spring boot based REST API. It has been more of a trend to secure REST APIs to avoid any unnecessary calls to public APIs. We will be using some Spring Boot features for Spring Security, along with JSON WebTokens for authorization.
JSON Web Tokens, known as JWTs are used for forming authorization for users. This helps us to build secure APIs and it is also easy to scale. During authentication, a JWT is returned. Whenever the user wants to access a protected resource, the browser must send JWTs in the
Authorization header along with the request. One thing to understand here is that it is a good security practice to secure REST API.
Basically, we will show how to:
Note – This won’t be a full-fledged app, but REST APIs based on Spring boot, Spring security.
What is OpenJDK? OpenJDk or Open Java Development Kit is a free, open-source framework of the Java Platform, Standard Edition (or Java SE).
In this post, we'll look at how to Build a Token-based authentication server using Spring Boot and Spring Security
