Omaha Azure User Group Meeting – February’2021 – 1

The first bi-weekly meeting for the month of February’2021 took place on February 3rd starting at 6 PM CST. It was an online meeting.

Topic: Managing Application Identity using Azure B2C
Identity is the new firewall in the cloud, and Azure AAD B2C provides a rich identity management system that is easy to enable authentication in any application.  B2C includes Open ID Connect for authenticating any kind of modern application and Oath2 for authorizing APIs.  In this talk, I’ll go through configuring B2C, using new Authorization Code Flow with Proof Key for Code Exchange (PKCE) for Single Page Applications (SPA) instead of Implicit Flow for improved security.  We will wrap up with more advanced features such as using the Identity Experience Framework to design customized sign in and sign up user flows.
