I really wanted more current practical theory. For example, I ended the book without knowing the best theory for how to have non-repudiation in today's OAuth 2.0 / OpenID Connect world. I currently suspect one of 2-3 possibilities involving JWS or OAuth and MAC, etc, but really I didn't get any answers from the book. I only learned about attribute / properties potentially related to topics such as non-repudiation. That is just one example where the theory could have been more solid for the inquisitive mind.
Having said all that, it is obvious that Prabath knows his stuff. I am guessing he knows the answers to my questions. He knows the standards, without a doubt. There is value in the book. For instance, I would buy a whole book filled with the Pattern's and Practices of Chapter 14.
OAuth, OpenID but he is also giving the reason why the standards are like they are, partially also from the historical
perspective. I do not found such a consideration in any of the available/similar book. To know such details is definitely
4 stars because of the Apache/Tomcat, etc. configurations. The paper in a book can be use better.
