I don't know if it's the best way because it depends on requirements, constraints and such but I would take a look at using an API Gateway as the auth layer.

The user requests an API, the gateway authenticates the requests, generates a token and opens the gates or blocks the request.

The type of auth flow depends a lot on what you want to accomplish but tools like Kong support different type of authentication methods (from basic auth to jwt to oauth2 to openid to others)
