Daniela Miao, the Co-Founder, and CTO of Momento, along with Allen Helton, an Ecosystem Engineer at Momento and AWS Serverless Hero, discuss two new features available at Momento: Fine-Grained Access Control (FGAC) and Momento HTTP Support

They kick the episode off with explaining that FGAC is a permission set that allows users to scope down API tokens for SDK clients. This feature is important for security, enabling users to limit access to specific functionalities or data. 

The second feature, Momento HTTP support, is introduced alongside the existing gRPC support. HTTP allows lightweight access to caches and topics, enabling direct communication with Momento without the need for SDKs.

They highlight use cases for the new features, including scenarios where HTTP can be used uploading images from IoT security cameras and how FGAC and HTTP can be combined for Edge Network applications. 

The podcast concludes with an exploration of potential applications and excitement for the future of Momento’s offerings. 

In the meantime, check out some examples using the new features that the team put together such as a chat application using FGAC and Momento Topics, or integrating Momento with Netlify and Vercel.
