Look inside

In this course, you will learn the basics of modern authentication using the ASP.NET Core Identity Library and learn to extend the functionality relative to your specific business needs. While perfect security is arguably impossible to achieve, we will explore a variety of techniques that go a long way in ensuring security and relative ease of use simultaneously. We will look at implementing security in a practical ASP.NET Core application and how we can implement role, claim and custom policy-based authorization.

ASP.NET Identity Core - Authorization, Authentication and User Management are mainstay features in real world applications. Identity Core is the flagship library, packaged with ASP.NET Core projects to help us get the most security possible out of the box. Getting authentication and authorization done right in your website can help keep your users and their data safe from attacks. Added features such as Two and Multi Factor Authentication are relatively easy to plugin and this library can easily be extended to implement unique business rules to surround how users are treated.

This course has content for developers at all levels as it is never too late or early to start thinking about the best security practices for your web application.
