Secure APIs by using OAuth 2.0

This tutorial shows you how to implement OAuth 2.0 schemes that are available in IBM API Connect to secure an API.
IBM API Connect provides two implementation modes, each of which provide different OAuth 2.0 schemes:
Confidential mode. A Confidential mode is suitable when an application is capable of maintaining the secrecy of the client secret. Use confidential mode when an application is capable of maintaining the secrecy of the client secret. This is usually the case when an application runs in a browser and accesses its own server when obtaining OAuth access tokens. As such, these schemes make use of the client secret. In the Confidential mode, we have three OAuth schemes: Application, Password and Access code.

Public mode. A Public mode is suitable when an application is incapable of maintaining the secrecy of the client secret. This is usually the case when the application is native on a computer or mobile

Fabric8: An Open Source Microservices Platform

Microservices are the wave of the future for Internet technology, partly because they can be tucked out of the way on the “edges” of the public network. Managing microservices is key to their use.

The Video Screening Room
This conference presentation by James Strachan at Devoxx 2016 in Antwerp, Belgium, does a nice job explaining how to create microservices on Fabric8. Strachan is well-known in the open source world as the creator of Apache Camel and Apache Groovy.

The main point I get from this video is that Fabric8 takes the pain out of cloud development. It just works. No wasted time configuring or troubleshooting web services.
If you’re interested in this topic, others involved with Fabric8 include Claus Ibsen and Roland Hub.
