Authentication and REST

Abstract

In this chapter, we continue working with DBService and the book club application; we will use standard HTTP facilities to extend them in two ways. First, we will add authentication so different groups of users have different access privileges. We will distinguish three groups of users: admins, who can grant privileges and create tables; members, who can submit reviews and otherwise change tables; and visitors, who can only browse and look things up. We will show you how to use HTTP-based authentication and indicate ways to provide more robust security. The revised service is called DBAuthService, DBService with authentication.
