About the Technology

Think of OAuth 2 as the web version of a valet key. It is an HTTP-based security protocol that allows users of a service to enable applications to use that service on their behalf without handing over full control. And OAuth is used everywhere, from Facebook and Google, to startups and cloud services.

About the Book

OAuth 2 in Action teaches you practical use and deployment of OAuth 2 from the perspectives of a client, an authorization server, and a resource server. You’ll begin with an overview of OAuth and its components and interactions. Next, you’ll get hands-on and build an OAuth client, an authorization server, and a protected resource. Then you’ll dig into tokens, dynamic client registration, and more advanced topics. By the end, you’ll be able to confidently and securely build and deploy OAuth on both the client and server sides.
