How can I secure the Alibaba Cloud API Gateway using Auth0?

Alibaba Cloud API Gateway provides API lifecycle management services, including API publishing, management, maintenance, and monetization. It enables simple and fast microservice integration, front and back end separation, and system integration at low costs and low risks. You can use API Gateway to share functions and data with your partners and third-party developers.

Auth0 is a flexible, drop-in solution to add authentication and authorization services to your applications. Your team and organization can avoid the cost, time, and risk that comes with building your own solution to authenticate and authorize users.

After set up an Auth0 account and configured an API in the Auth0 dashboard, your API Gateway plugin could be used to verify JWT tokens and bound it to your API. The plugin configuration specifies where API Gateway can find the token parameter. In a real application, the frontend application would call Auth0 for a token and provide that to the backend. You can follow this tutorial for more details.
