In this session we will go over OAuth, which is a widely popular standard for securing exposed APIs, and accessing other APIs in a secure fashion. We will discuss why OAuth is so popular, what does it offer, and how easy (or hard!) it is to use it from both as a provider (to protect your APIs) or as a consumer (to access other providers' APIs). This session would be a perfect fit for developers involved with writing open APIs and exposing protected/privileged data via those APIs, and also those who wish to access protected/privileged data from other providers who use OAuth for their API security (like Google, Twitter, Netflix). If time permits, we will go over a Java-based OAuth client for one of these popular services as a hands-on demo.
