Mashups using the same API (70)
The promise of sharing our data from one site with another raises plenty of privacy concerns. While not all of these worries can be solved by technology, one definitely can. You should not have to share your password in order for services to access your content on other sites. That's where OAuth comes in. It's "an open protocol to allow secure API authorization in a simple and standard method from desktop and web applications."
The Cloud Security Alliance Summit brought together a panel of security experts on February 27 in San Francisco to examine the threats posed by API and cloud-based computing. But rather than providing guidance on how to mitigate security risks they focused instead on the uncertain nature of security in an environment that is increasingly dominated by applications that use APIs to transfer data across the cloud.
While testing out a new tool I'm working on that uses a variety of OAuth2 providers and thought I’d catalog some of the quirks I came across. This is just for the authorization flow, not for actually making requests once you’ve secured a token. Now that the OAuth2 spec is solidified we should start seeing less and less of these issues.
