The talk
The 7-year odyssey of an authorization mechanism
Authorization by itself is a simple task - give a bunch of users a bunch of rights for a bunch of objects, right? In this talk we will share lessons learned from 7 years of experiments with various approaches and their limits. We will learn why we got back to the legacy option of server session and why we were forced to write an authorization library of our own in JavaScript.
