Talk name: Securing Node.js APIs with Decentralised Identity Tokens

Talk Abstract: Authentication and Authorization are serious problems. We often dedicate a lot of time to craft powerful APIs but overlook proper security measures. Let's solve it with Magic using a key-based identity solution built on top of DID standard, where users’ identities are self-sovereign by leveraging blockchain public-private key pairs.

In this talk, we’ll look at proper ways to secure our Node.js APIs with Decentralised Identity Tokens. We’ll go from learning what Decentralised Identity standards are, how the users’ identities are self-sovereign by leveraging blockchain public-private key pairs, why they’re the future of API security, and to put theory into practice we will build a real-world implementation using Node.js where I’ll show common best practices.

In order to provide you with the best experience possible, we decided to add some rules, so that everyone can enjoy the meetup :
