OAuth is a powerful solution for many providers. As with any tool, however, it’s only as powerful as it is understood by the user who chooses it. Understanding what OAuth is and, at the very least, having a general overview of each particular flow is extremely important. In a recent blog post, Daniel Lindau, looked at OAuth, and gave a brief rundown of each flow type.

We are happy to announce the release of Curity 3.1.0 and 3.2.0. Though not a major update, this release includes a lot of fixes and features. In addition to the thousands of tests that run on each commit, we spent a lot of additional time during this release cycle on testing. We added a lot more tests and ways of testing to help us detect issues more quickly. We also made a lot of improvements to the core system, resulting in a more secure and performant base. We noticed that some flows ran over three times faster and were able to sustain 300% more concurrent users. If you're still on 2.X, you can expect a tremendous speed boost after upgrading!

We are happy to be attending API Days in Paris on January 30th, where our CEO Travis Spencer will be holding a session on Secure Your APIs with Phantom Tokens.
In his session, Travis will be talking about how it is not sufficient to simply follow the standards to secure your APIs. How do you properly handle PII and other sensitive data inside JWTs and what about of devs depending on the data where changes to the token format breaks the app? The presentation will show how this is resolved using Phantom Tokens in the Curity Identity Server, still being 100% OAuth 2 compliant and benefiting from JWTs in the API backend protected by normal Reverse Proxy.
