Express.js TypeScript API: Security and Identity Management


What is Express.js?

Express.js is a minimal and flexible Node.js web application framework that provides a robust set of features to build APIs quickly. Developers can easily configure Express.js to build APIs that are secure by design. The Node.js open source ecosystem provides developers with tools to protect their Express.js applications from well-known web vulnerabilities, use cookies securely, prevent brute-force attacks, protect against cross-site request forgery (CSRF), and much more. You can integrate the Auth0 Identity Platform with Express.js to deliver a balance between security, privacy, and convenience to your users.

Auth0 handles over 4.5 billion monthly average transactions. That's only possible because Auth0 is committed to solving complex identity problems by empowering developers with tools that meet their unique security needs and requirements. Please let us show you how Auth0 makes identity and security work for you by exploring the Express.js code samples below.

Why Use TypeScript with Express.js?

TypeScript is a strongly typed programming language that builds on JavaScript. Using TypeScript with Express.js gives you access to optional static type-checking along with robust tooling and the latest ECMAScript features. TypeScript can help developers build faster and more safely by helping them find bugs early in the development process. Support for TypeScript has grown exponentially in the past years across libraries and frameworks, making this one of the fastest-growing programming languages.
