Okta Integration Network
Kong API Gateway
Kong API Gateway integrates with Okta API Access Management (OAuth as a Service) to secure internal and external API traffic, in two different deployment scenarios: 1 - An authorization-tier integration, where authentication will be happening outside of Kong. A web application will handle authentication vs. Okta, acquiring an access token, and sending that access token to Kong on behalf of the end user. 2 - Kong itself handles authentication vs. Okta, and passes user info to upstream apps.
- API production and consumption is exploding, overburdening IT teams
- Microservices, partner integrations, and public APIs are driving this growth
- Securing all these APIs is harder – and more important – than ever
- Asking each engineering team to implement their own API security is wasteful and risky
