Secure APIs with FastAPI and the Microsoft Identity Platform Transcripts
Chapter: Welcome to the course
0:00 What's up everyone? Welcome to security, API's with fast API. And the Microsoft identity platform.
0:09 My hope is that you're excited to learn how to build secure and robust API's using a truly fantastic Python framework like Fast API along with
0:19 modern authentication protocols such as OAUTH2 and open ID connect. FastAPI Is a Python framework for building web applications which is
0:30 built on top of important fundamentals such as simplicity, performance and extensibility while making it extremely easy to learn.
0:39 The Microsoft identity platform is a Federated identity provider,
0:43 A system that allows you to manage and authenticate users built on top of open standards
0:48 and comes with the performance, reliability and advanced capabilities. You need to quickly and easily integrate identity into your solutions.
1:00 So unless you're building marketing sites with static content, it's very likely that your solution needs to know who's trying to access it and what
1:08 they can do once they're in and we want to do this with as little code
1:14 as possible. Therefore, I'm truly excited for this course and I look forward to learning with you.
