This month Pahud invited us - a group of AWS Hero and AWS Builders to use AWS CDK to code around CloudFront Extensions (CloudFront Lambda@Edge). From my long todo list, I found a topic related to OAuth 2.0 that I have always wanted to do. It’s a perfect timing to try and see how to implement a CloudFront Extension solution in AWS CDK (Cloud Development Kit) with
.env environment variable settings, so that you can easily set your favorite IdP (Identity Provider), and then set the parameters generated by the IdP into
.env file. You can use this CloudFront Extension CDK solution to complete the deployment. After practicing, it should be completed within 20 minutes.
This article is organized in order for future education and training material, and is divided into three parts:
- At the beginning, we will introduce use cases, architecture, OAuth 2.0 protocol flow, and Grant Type: Authorization Code process
- Then select and configure a IdP you like (this part is expected to be expanded and updated in the future)
- Finally, “CloudFront Extension OAuth2 Getting Started” takes everyone to actually operate this CDK
