Serverless Identity Management, AuthN, and AuthZ Workshop


In this workshop, you will build a serverless microservices application that enables users to request unicorn rides from the Wild Rydes fleet. The application will present users with a user interface for signing up, signing in, indicating their location to request a ride, and managing their rider profile.

This application architecture demonstrates end-to-end authentication and authorization patterns through the use of Amazon Cognito, Amazon API Gateway, AWS Lambda, and AWS Identity and Access Management (IAM). A single page React JS web app hosts the HTML, CSS and Javascript to render the front-end which then connects to a public serverless backend API built using Amazon API Gateway and AWS Lambda. Amazon Cognito provides user identity management and authentication functions to secure the backend API. Finally, DynamoDB provides a persistence layer where data is stored and retrieved via the API’s Lambda function.
