Security professionals and developers are more and more frequently turning to the delegation framework OAuth. But what is it exactly? OAuth intersects with authentication and access control, yet you would not likely use OAuth in and of itself for authentication or session management or as an access control in your applications. Even more confusing, OAuth is not a standard; various service providers will likely have different implementations. Jim Manico offers an overview of OAuth, explaining where it fits in and how to use it in a secure fashion.
