Learn how HTTP authentication and the Authorize works to authenticate client requests.
- [Instructor] Before we dig into how to add authentication…and authorization to the API,…it's important to first understand…how authentication works over HTTP.…The terms authentication and authorization are different,…but closely related, and the differences can be confusing.…As you'll see in a moment,…we'll talk about the HTTP authorization header…when we're really referring to authentication,…which certainly doesn't help the confusion.…When I refer to authentication in this chapter,…I mean the process of verifying…that the user is who they say they are.…An example of this would be submitting your username…and password to log in to a website.…
This is different than authorization,…which means checking whether a particular user…or client has the permissions…to do something in the system.…An example in the Landon Hotel API would be…that guests at the hotel have permission…to see their own booking resources,…but they can't see other guests' bookings.…An administrator account, however,…would be authorized to get any booking.…
