About - Scott Brady

Identity & Access Control Lead at Rock Solid Knowledge, Pluralsight Author, and Speaker. I specialize in IdentityServer and all things Authentication, Identity, OAuth, and OpenID Connect.

In my day job, I create identity solutions for customers and develop commercial IdentityServer products. This gives me the opportunity to play with both older protocols such as SAML & WS-Federation, and cutting edge technologies such as WebAuthN.

I mainly work with C# and ASP.NET Core, but otherwise I dabble with languages such as Kotlin, Python, and Typescript.

I sometimes make an appearance on the speaking circuit, whether it's user groups, conferences, or recorded mediums.

Contact

The best way to keep up to date with me is by following me on Twitter. Feel free to reach out if you have an article request. If you are not a fan of twitter you can find me on most other social media platforms using the alias scottbrady91.

Speaking

If you want to get in contact about speaking engagements, please email me at [email protected]. I usually speak about or run workshops on IdentityServer4 and OpenID Connect, however when Dom & Brock are hogging this topic I enjoy talking about ASP.NET Core, Authentication, and OpenID Connect on other platforms. Travel & expenses are requested to offset my employer's loss of a resource.

Personal

I can look a little different up close as I have a condition called Vitiligo which has caused some pigmentless patches of skin on my face and hands. Luckily for me, I'm lily white anyway, but this condition affects a lot of people and can really affect someone's confidence and life.

The bride in the picture is my beautiful wife, Rachel, on our wedding day. That was the best day of my life. Next on the life checklist is to buy a house...

I initially started this site to document my learning of OpenID Connect and IdentityServer, however thanks to the early success of those articles, and later the job they earnt me, I now work full time with these technologies.

This site is self-created and is currently running ASP.NET Core hosted on Azure App Services. I use both its maintenance and articles as a learning tool for myself as much as anything else.
