Announcing Kong Summit 2021: Developing the Connected World

Okta and Kong: Integrate Identity into your APIs

Bharat Bhat, Okta

Okta is the leading provider for identity and access management. With the number of microservices and APIs exploding, security is a bigger challenge than ever. With Okta’s OAuth as a Service plugin, you can quickly add API Access Management to Kong Gateway. Authenticate once through Okta, enforce the token in Kong, and authorize API access quickly and securely.

At Kong Summit 2021, Okta and Kong are excited to announce how they are expanding their collaboration with identity and APIs. In this session, attendees will learn best practices for API authentication and authorization and how the next phase of our partnership will make this even easier to implement. Be sure to join us for a live demo and what we’re working on next.
