Overcoming access control challenges

Authorization poses a unique challenge for multi-tenant applications. It's in the critical path of every application request, so it has to make decisions with minimum latency and maximum availability. This guide teaches you how to overcome these challenges by:

  • Extracting policy logic from application code
  • Applying the principle of least privilege
  • Enforcing locally against real-time data
  • Centrally managing policies and decision logs
