What we know

Stormpath has been acquired by Okta.

  • The Stormpath APIs will remain in service until August 17, 2017 at noon PST. On that date and time, Stormpath APIs will be shut down.
  • The Stormpath SDKs will be in maintenance mode until August 17, 2017 when they will be decommissioned.
  • Stormpath users will be able to migrate their data into Okta, and may also export their Stormpath data to use as desired.

Current Stormpath users must migrate – whether it be to Okta or a different provider altogether. We understand this is a challenge, a challenge you most likely did not see coming in the near future.

You have 6 months to choose a provider that best meets your business needs, export existing users and be up and running with minimal end user disruption. We are here to help. Continue reading

Inversoft’s founder and CEO, Brian Pontarelli, will be speaking on Authentication as a Micro-Service at Code Talent.

Authentication is a core piece of many applications. However, it has traditionally been handled in a monolithic manner. Moving to micro-services means that applications now need to decouple authentication, user management and user data.

What we’ll cover at the meetup:

  • Most common pitfalls of authentication and authorization as a microservice
  • How to break apart your architecture and build services for user management features
  • Portable user identity tokens

Fake News. What’s really B.S. and how do we get rid of it?

Kelly Strain

fake news

If you have been on the internet this week you are aware of the fake news crisis spiralling out of control. But just in case you missed it, recent headlines read something like this: Facebook is being blamed for Trump’s election, Google and Facebook Take Aim at Fake News Sites, Facebook’s fake news crisis deepens.

With great power comes great responsibility

Facebook has over 1 billion active users who utilize the platform to post, share and comment on news. When Facebook was accused of influencing the election, Zuckerberg was quick to say that was a “pretty crazy idea.” Is it really that crazy? Facebook has become a catalyst for the spread of fake news given the ease of it’s “share” button. Regardless, fake news isn’t going away anytime soon, it will likely worsen and while Facebook has taken steps to limit the sites’ use of their ad networks, there has been no push to eliminate fake news from the News Feed.

This daunting issue is not Facebook’s alone. Any platform that allows user generated content would be wise to get out ahead of this growing problem in order to prevent this spam and protect their brand.  Continue reading
