Thanks for purchasing the MEAP of Microservices Security in Action. We hope that what you'll get access to will be of immediate use to you and, with your help, the final book will be great!
This book is written for developers and architects who have some experience in software development and who are well versed in microservices design principles, applications, and benefits.
In this book, we focus on microservices security. When you make the decision to use microservices architecture in building all your critical business operations, security is of topmost importance. A security breach could result in many unpleasant outcomes, from losing customer confidence to bankruptcy. Microservices are becoming key enablers of digital transformation, so microservices security must be consciously planned, designed, and implemented.
This book introduces you to the key fundamentals, security principles, and best practices involved in securing microservices. We’ll be using industry-leading open-source tools along with Java code samples developed with Spring Boot for demonstrations. You may pick better competitive tools later in your production environment, of course.
