We're building a web services platform to begin to replace parts of an existing monolith. The first front to back operation I want to attack is authentication.
I've successfully incorporated the concepts in the angular demo DF has online but i have a more general question.
If our existing mysql db is 40-50k users how should we consider authenticating them into an app?
Does each user have to be in the DF users console or authenticated through an ad/ldap?
Should we create a server-side php script to hash the incoming pswd and provide the app a login success/fail? If so, how would we approach passing a session token back which would qualify that user access to authorized endpoints?
Thx for any input. Look forward to your feedback.
