The canonical reference for securing a Spring application.
The 18 modules cover everything from the basics of Spring Security in an MVC application to advanced use-cases such as understanding attack vectors, proper password storage and risks, API security with OAuth2 and full Java config.
In addition to the framework guides, we'll also do deep-dives into full working security implementations. We'll do a complete ACL implementation for applications that simply need to go beyond the roles and privileges.
We'll tackle Two-Factor Authentication to add extra security to our apps. We're going to drive that with a soft-token, a hardware token and finally with SMS.
And of course you'll dive deep into OAuth2 security for a REST API, understand the right grant types to use in each scenario and how to set them up with the framework.
The reference for building a production grade REST API with Spring.
The 14 modules cover building and securing the API for production use, advanced evolution and discovery techniques, client code to consume it from the front end, comprehensive monitoring, continuous integration, continuous deployment, and more.
In addition to the detailed guides on implementation, you'll also get the knowledge needed to run the API in production reliably and consistently. You'll get templates of my time-tested Spring API implementations along with the understanding of how to use these to get your own APIs out and into the hands of clients quickly.
Everything I wish I had access to when I built my first API with Spring.
I am a software engineer and consultant with a passion for the Spring ecosystem, REST APIs and, of course, security. Nowadays, I’m focused on running Baeldung, creating video courses, helping the Java community and doing quite a bit of OAuth work.
Frequently Asked Questions
"I have several years of experience with Java, Maven, Tomcat and REST, and I am now working on a project that makes heavy use of Spring and OAuth2. Because I was not involved from the ground up in it, a lot of Spring aspects have been hard work for me. Your course has given me a better knowledge of Spring and showed some good examples of how to test."
- John Reah, Head of Software Engineering at HTK
"I've recently implemented a REST API for a client and learning from your course made me see how wrong I was in some of my decisions. This course came just in time and I am very grateful for helping me become a better engineer."
