In this post, we’ll explore how to create a NestJS back-end that handles OpenID Connect authentication for a React app that it serves up with an express-session. The session store will share the MongoDB instance that is also used for storing cats.

Last month, I had the opportunity to speak with Joe Grandja at SpringOne Platform 2019 in Austin, Texas. In the talk, we break apart the pieces of an intentionally non-trivial demo to show how you can secure real-life microservices architectures with OAuth2 and OpenID Connect.
HttpInvoker may not be the what the hipsters are using (it’s been around since 2003 or so) but there are still plenty of Java desktop applications out there communicating over RMI or EJB that could use a security boost by using OAuth2.
The JHipster UAA (User Account and Authentication) server option shouldn’t be confused with cloudfoundry’s UAA – although they do similar things.
