Express4 + Mongoose + JSON Web Token Authentication - Warehouse

Dealing with authentication is a must for most of the systems. This article is quite long, so be prepared. Table of contents Tutorial Resources How we used to do authentication As we know HTTP protocol is stateless, so it cannot remember anything between requests, as it forgets everything on the next request. Imagine if you need to login in on every request you make to the page, which is a real pain.

How did we solve this Sessions: We have to store our sessions on the server, and if we have multiple server then we need to synchronize the sessions between the servers, we can use redis to make it easier to share the sessions. JSON Web Token Good thing about JWT is that it doesn’t use sessions, meaning has no problems with CSRF, works excellent with CORS, Mobile So the flow is: So one important thing is how and where do we store the token? Implementation.

Introduction Satellizer is a token-based authentication module for AngularJS that comes with built-in support for Facebook, Google, LinkedIn, Twitter, GitHub, Yahoo and Windows Live OAuth providers, as well as a more traditional email and password sign-in flow.

The motivation to build Satellizer came from my frustration with existing authentication solutions for AngularJS at the time of writing my blog post Create a TV Show Tracker using AngularJS, Node.js and MongoDB. Although Satellizer gained quite a bit of popularity, building it was not without its own set of challenges: Writing a library is very different from writing an application. Ok, enough of Satellizer's backstory. Choosing your Node.js Authentication Strategy. Node is blowing up!

Choosing your Node.js Authentication Strategy

I’ve been working and playing with Node since 2010 and in that time I’ve seen it go from a tiny community of people hacking side projects to a full-fledged and legit movement of modern developers building very real, very important, and very large applications. A whole ecosystem of solutions has sprung up to help Node developers, and that ecosystem is rapidly evolving. But it’s increasingly hard to figure out what solutions are best for you because of all the noise in a Google search or in npm. Understanding passport.js authentication flow. Passport.js is a flexible authentication middleware (allowing users to log in) that can be fully customised and works great with connect/express.

Understanding passport.js authentication flow

It is flexible in the sense that it allows for different authentication strategies (think via Twitter, via our own user database - installed via separate modules that can be combined) and it allows us to specify any route or output during authentication. The Local Strategy allows us to authenticate users by looking up their data in the app's database. It has some great examples how to use it. In this post, we walk through the authentication flow, the next post discusses some partical use cases using passportjs.
