Open Source API Gateways and Dynamic Authorization: Working with Kong

APIs are used in almost all modern application projects and are usually tightly coupled with microservices. Securing APIs in different ways is critical and although many API gateways can handle basic security, they usually lack the capability to apply fine-grained policy based authorization.

In conjunction with Optum, Axiomatics will present a webinar on a newer contender in the API gateway market, and an open source option, Kong. Axiomatics has seen an increase in requests for an integration of the Axiomatics Policy Server with Kong, and together with Optum has developed an open source integration.

In this session, Jonas Iggbom will show how Axiomatics operates with API gateways for dynamic and policy-based authorization. Carlos Garcia will discuss specific healthcare industry challenges when exposing data via APIs, and how Optum extended the capabilities of the Kong API gateway to integrate with the Axiomatics authorization engine.
