Implementing Microservices Authorization for Zero Trust Security

Deployment Architecture Guide

Fine-grained authorization is critical for enterprises building and deploying microservices and service meshes in the cloud. With the exponential increase in the number of components that interact with one another compared to traditional application environments, Zero Trust has become a top security strategy for many enterprises. 

With this Styra Deployment Architecture Guide, put expert technical guidance into action. Gain a clear understanding of how Zero Trust operates within the context of microservices applications and cloud-native authorization, alongside popular services meshes like Istio, Kong, Kuma and Google Anthos Service Mesh. Then, explore a simple, easy-to-understand deployment architecture with accompanying workflows that show you how to implement Zero Trust security for end users and services using Open Policy Agent (OPA). 

Zero Trust is a journey — and this guide is the perfect place to start. 

Using this Styra Deployment Architecture Guide, explore:

  • Defining a Zero Trust strategy for microservices applications
  • A deployment architecture using Open Policy Agent (OPA) and Styra Declarative Authorization Service (DAS) for service meshes like Kong, Istio, Kuma and Google Anthos Service Mesh
  • End-user authorization with JSON Web Token validation 
  • Service-to-service authorization with SPIFFE/SPIRE
