OAuth - WTF?

A session at Scotch on the Rocks 2011

Thursday 3rd March, 2011

11:30am to 12:30pm (GMT)

Since it's conception in 2006/7, the Open Authorization access protocol was geared towards providing a detailed, uniform method of granting access permissions for API providers and consumers alike. Now widely used amongst many global providers and rapidly replacing basic or generic authentication protocols, it is truly becoming the standard means of access authentication.

So why is it still as confusing as hell?

Join Matt Gifford (aka coldfumonkeh), as we look at the structure of OAuth requests, the variety of authentication 'flavours' available to use, and how to implement and consume access-restricted services through the protocol.
