OAuth



OAuth or Open Authentication is an open standard to allow end users authorize 3rd party service to access to their account information without exposing their account credential.

An application that uses OAuth, will first request for authorization acknowledgement from user, where it will be then forwarded to an authorization server to get the access token. This access token will be used to access to the protected resources from the server.
