Silicon Valley Code Camp : October 5th and 6th 2013session
Securing RESTful APIs using OAuth 2 and OpenID Connect
About This Session
Constructing a successful and simple API is the lifeblood of your developer community, and REST is a simple standard through which this can be accomplished. As we construct our API and need to secure the system to authenticate and track applications making requests, the open standard of OAuth 2 provides us with a secure and open source method of doing just this.
In this talk, we will explore REST and OAuth 2 as standards for building out a secure API infrastructure, exploring many of the architectural decisions that PayPal took in choosing variations in the REST standard and specific implementations of OAuth 2.
