Overview

This course is also available as self-paced virtual (e-learning) course Supporting REST and JOSE in IBM DataPower Gateway V7.5 (ZE752G). This option does not require any travel.

This course teaches you the developer skills that are required to configure and implement services that support REST-based traffic and JOSE-based signatures and encryption on the IBM DataPower Gateways (IDG) with firmware version 7.5.1.

The DataPower Gateways allow an enterprise to simplify, accelerate, and enhance the security capabilities of its JSON, XML, web services, and REST deployments. For JSON payloads, DataPower supports digital signatures and encryption that conform to the JSON Object Signing and Encryption (JOSE) specification.

Through a combination of instructor-led lectures and hands-on lab exercises, you learn how to use the configuration options, processing actions, and GatewayScript to support REST-based message traffic. To protect JSON message payloads, you use JSON Web Signature (JWS) and JSON Web Encryption (JWE) actions in the processing policy of a service.

Hands-on exercises give you experience working directly with a DataPower gateway. The exercises focus on skills such as selecting request and response types, using the HTTP method criteria in a matching rule, style sheet and GatewayScript transforms, GatewayScript CLI debugging, signing JSON payloads, and encrypting JSON payloads.
