OAuth 2.0 Identity and Access Management Patterns
OAuth 2.0 has become the most widely used authorization framework. It provides an easy-to-use sign-in mechanism and allows users to quickly and efficiently secure service APIs. It also provides a protection layer for assets so that various third-party applications cannot have direct access to them. From service providers like Amazon and social media platforms like Facebook and Twitter to various internal enterprise solutions, OAuth 2.0 is the preferred standard for authorization.
This book helps you cover each type of application: web, client-side, desktop, and trusted applications. In addition, you are also shown how to implement various authorization grant flows for each of these applications. You will uncover the security features that are a part of OAuth 2.0. More importantly, the book demonstrates what information is transmitted during the execution of a flow, and which precautions can be made. With OAuth 2.0 Identity and Access Management Patterns, you will be able to build a secure OAuth 2.0 client application with full confidence and will completely understand what data is exchanged when performing an authorization grant flow.
