When implementing user authentication in an object-oriented application, the same methods would be used. The approach will be slightly different because most of the authentication will be handled through routing.
Congratulations on building authentication and authorization for your application.
Whether you build your own authentication in the future, or
use an existing resource, the skills and knowledge you learned in this course
will serve you well for keeping your data safe and secure.
We've covered the basic principles that all authentication systems will use.
Most frameworks will include their own suggestions for authentication and
When you use existing packages,
you have more eyes helping to make sure that your code is secure.
This means that it's important to choose a reputable package that is continuing to
provide security updates as new vulnerabilities are discovered.
It's also important to make sure that the packages you're using stay up to date.
Practice the new skills you've learned by choosing some of the suggested
enhancements in the notes associated with this video.
We've also included additional resources to continue your exploration of this
Authentication and authorization are a key feature of many applications.
Use this skills you've learned to take your apps to the next level
as you have fun and keep learning.
