Learn Python with Talk Python's Python courses

oso authorizes Python

Episode #294, published Mon, Dec 7, 2020, recorded Fri, Oct 23, 2020.

This episode is carbon neutral.
When we think about accounts and security, we often think about identity (logging in and proving who you are). But for many applications, especially internal apps at large organizations, that's just step one. The next step is what can you do and what can you not do.

In this episode, you'll learn about a new library called oso. It's a declarative way to create policy code that maps to your mental model for who is allowed to do what in your system. We have two guests, Graham Neray and Sam Scott from the oso project to tell us all about it.
