Centralized Authentication with Apache APISIX and Ory
We know that an API gateway offers a central control point for incoming traffic to a variety of destinations. Also, the API gateway can be typically where we do all of the interactions with IDP (Identity provider) for those upstream services. it alone interacts with the identity provider such as Ory, it only has to know how to deal with the authentication logic flows and by avoiding the need to repeat the development of authentication code for each application. We are going to talk about the use-cases and benefits of centralized authentication with Apache APISIX API Gateway and we will cover how to utilize Apache APISIX OpenID Connect Plugin for Ory as the identity provider to get the most benefit from both ecosystems.
