RESTfu­­l Jav­a­ wit­h ­JAX­-­­RS 2.­0­ (Second Edition)

Wrapping Up

In this chapter, we discussed a few of the authentication protocols used on the Internet—specifically, Basic, Digest, and Client Certificate Authentication. You learned how to configure your JAX-RS applications to be secure using the metadata provided by the servlet and Java EE specifications. You also learned about OAuth as well as digital signatures and encryption of HTTP messages. Chapter 29 contains some code you can use to test-drive many of the concepts in this chapter.
