Build Secure APIs with Auth0 and Postman
In this course, the students will learn how to build a basic API using express and NodeJs. Then, they will see how to test it using Postman. Finally, they will learn how to secure a route on their API using Auth0 and how to test it using an OAuth 2.0 authentication mechanism.
Build Secure APIs
In this course, you will see how to build a NodeJs API with Express. If you already know how to use Express, you would still benefit from watching this lesson as the code built here is used in the next lessons.
Learn how to use collections in Postman to test you various endpoints in the Express server that was built in the previous lesson.
In this lesson, you will learn how to configure Auth0 to protect an API.
Using the API built in lesson 1 and the configuration created in lesson 3, you will learn how to protect a route on your API. This route will now require a valid JWT in order to provide you with the content that was previously publicly available.
Learn how to authenticate with Auth0 in order to obtain valid JWTs that can be used with the private route you've created in lesson 4.
