The Ingress controller is an ideal location for centralized authentication and authorization in Kubernetes. We show how to implement single sign-on with NGINX Ingress Controller as the relaying party and Okta as the identity provider in the OIDC Authorization Code Flow.
NGINX Plus uses the information in JSON Web Tokens (JWTs) to authenticate clients and route them based on the JWT content.
Improve security for your website and web apps with the NGINX Cookbook, Part 2, from O'Reilly Media. Topics include JWTs, the ModSecurity WAF, and more.
