How to Build and Secure Web Applications with Blazor
What is it?
Blazor is a part of ASP.NET which is a prominent web development framework and it exploits the .NET developer platform with libraries, software systems and programmes for creation of web apps. The advantage is that, the utilization of templates C #and HTML makes developing an application very convenient and in many cases very swift.
Even though Razor templates are used by Blazor for building UI components, the end result is carried out in standard HTML and CSS in the browser. Therefore, you have at your disposal, CSS features and libraries for responsive decorations and styling, and standard HTML id and class attributes in Blazor to create a seamless experience. Blazor generated HTML and CSS are absolutely similar to other HTML and CSS. This implies that all legitimate HTML and CSS are conducive to the creation of any Blazor application. The framework has additional attributes to aid in bringing about HTML, like built in form and input components. These optional components generalize and simplify the usual task of creating a form with validation. Finally, standard HTML is rendered by these components.
You can secure your web applications by adhering to the following pattern.
1. Build a Web Assembly Application in Blazor.
2. The Blazor WASM (WebAssembly) app should be registered with Auth0 which possesses a Level 2 audit Gold CSA star certification for its efficiency and competence in cloud service security. Auth0 has compliance with the Payment Card Industry (PCI) and Data Security Standard(DSS) which necessitates stringent security controls for dealing with user payment card data.
3. Add support for authentication.
4. Secure Application Programming Interface(API) with Auth0.
5. Call the protected API.
So, that’s all about Blazor at an elementary level without delving into any code whatsoever.
