Hello readers,

From time to time (specially during the early stages of a project or definition time) you need to get involved with the security aspects of the solution. While we all agree that  a proper security expert is required on board (or maybe few of them) we also reckon that the basics about security should be known but all team members, specially if we’re securing external web sites or REST APIs.

Some time ago I checked how some of the big players (incl. AWS, Netflix, etc) implement  security and wanted to compare them in a power point presentation. I’m sharing this presentation in case someone else needs to learn about it too. Please note that these things kind of change frequently so you might need to revert back to the provider for up to date information.


There is also a good article in CodeProject:
