AWS Tutorial: How to Implement User Authentication with Application Load Balancer and Cognito (Video)

User auth with ALB and Cognito

Here’s a video from the Columbia AWS Meetup held on August 16, 2018 about how to implement user authentication using AWS Application Load Balancer (ALB) and Cognito without modifying your source code.

One of our software developers, Kate Ryabtseva, builds a simple web application with a public landing page that anyone can see and a secret page that only approved users can access. Kate goes over how to:

  • Set up ALB to increase the fault tolerance and availability of your web application
  • Implement Cognito to manage your app’s users
  • Integrate both together to authenticate users without modifying your source code
