OAuth 2.0 has emerged as the de facto standard protocol for securely protecting APIs. It provides applications the ability for secure access while keeping your passwords safe using authorization tokens.
In our increasingly connected world, knowledge on this authorization protocol becomes crucial for developers in order to understand how programs, applications, and websites give access to users.
In this episode, we talk to Matthias Biehl, an expert advisor at API University about OAuth, discuss his book, “OAuth 2.0: Getting Started in Web-API Security”, the different “flows” on how an access token is obtained, how OAuth is utilized for microservices, and the future of the protocol.
