Demo time

Fanie Reynders this week demo’ed JWT. This is short for JSON Web Tokens, an open industry standard RFC 7519 method for representing claims securely between two parties. It shows us how to handle the exchange of tokens in a .NET Core application. A complex subject that for most people is hard to get but by going into the details we presented a complete running example explaining how to use tokens for authentication using JWT technologies.

We hope you like watching our Dutch SDN Casts to catch up in a bit more than an hour on the topics that are hot for this week and hear the latest news and see the great demo’s on technology and software development that you can apply in your real world scenarios.

Don’t forget to subscribe our channel as with enough subscribers we get the option to create an easier to remember link instead of the complex URL we are forced in today for our channel! And if you haven’t heard, the 100th subscriber will get something in return!
