Beyond the basics: Building a feature-rich OpenID Connect Identity and Access Management Platform

In today's world, identity and access management (IAM in short) is critical to protecting confidential data and applications. With the increasing adoption of cloud-based applications, building a scalable and secure identity and access management platform is a must for organizations of all sizes.

In this session, you'll learn about the journey of building an advanced IAM platform based on Duende IdentityServer. We'll discuss the standard capabilities of IdentityServer and explore how we extended it with features such as multi-factor authentication, home realm discovery, and user impersonation. You'll also learn about the best practices for building a resilient and secure platform, including strategies for handling scale and redundancy.

Whether you're just starting out with OpenID Connect or you're looking to take your identity and access management platform to the next level, this session is for you.
