OpenID Connect and OAuth 2.0 Primer

If you’re involved with technologies such as Entra ID, M365, SharePoint, Power Platform, or IOT, you’ve likely encountered references to OpenID Connect and OAuth 2.0 protocols. But have you ever explored what these protocols actually do and how they function?

OpenID Connect is utilized to verify a user’s authentication to an application, while OAuth 2.0 is employed to authorize an application’s access to another app (API), using either a delegated user identity or a workload identity. A significant advantage of these protocols is their ability to operate across various application types and platforms.

However, the flexibility they offer, along with the standards and necessary extensions to accommodate different platforms, can make understanding the protocols highly challenging.

Join us for a session where John Craddock, who has extensive experience with OpenID Connect and OAuth 2.0 across Microsoft and other platforms, will clearly and concisely explain the protocols and their use.

This deep-dive session is packed with demonstrations, and John will share his troubleshooting tips and tricks to ensure your apps perform optimally.
