Adding social login to a website using Spring Social

Magnus Larsson

Handling user registration and authentication on a website is hard, both for the users required to remember yet another pair of username/password and for developers implementing a secure handling of the user credentials. With requirements of more sophisticated login-methods such as two-factor authentication and single sign-on it gets even worse. A few years ago websites started to use social login, i.e. delegating the sign in process to social network services such as Facebook, Twitter and Google+. Initially social login was rather complex to setup and a number of commercial offerings evolved to simplify the setup. Today a free and open source based alternative exists, the Spring Social project. This presentation will describe how Spring Social can be used to setup social login.
