Having many services exposed to the internet and letting them properly handle login and authentication is a non-trivial task for developers. Add basic security features like CSRF-prevention to this and you have a handful of work to do.

Enter OWASP Application Gateway (OAG). OAG acts as a reverse proxy for you and is able to handle OpenID Connect. It provides a central and controlled way to secure your application services.

In this talk the OWASP Application Gateway project leads will introduce you to OAG, explain its main features as well demo out-of-the-box usage and customization by integrating it in your own SpringBoot project.
