Spring Security 6: The Next Generation

Robert Winch, Spring Security Lead, VMware

Starting as Acegi Security in 2004 and officially joining the Spring portfolio in 2008 as Spring Security, the Spring Security project has continued to evolve as the most comprehensive security framework in the Java ecosystem. In each major generation, Spring Security updates to more secure defaults, and the Spring Security 6 release is no exception.

Make no mistake, security can be difficult. However, by using the full power of Spring Security in the way it was intended, you can simplify your path to having a more secure application. In this talk, you will learn the modern way to add Spring Security to your application. Along the way, we will discover what’s new in Spring Security 6 by taking an in-depth look at the new defaults, APIs and features.
