Abstract

As BuzzFeed transitioned to microservices it needed to secure a growing number of internal tools. Our first solution was an open source auth service deployed in front of each app, but this approach had a number of scaling issues. The talk will discuss sso, our open-source, homegrown, centralized solution which elegantly solved this problem.
