How OAuth Fits into API Management

The webinar will begin with a review of the OAuth open authentication standard, which has gained popularity for its ability to let users share content stored on one site with another site without having to share all their access permissions. This will be followed by a discussion of the OAuth reference architecture available with WSO2 API Manager, which enables secure authorization of subscribed APIs via the OAuth 2.0 key model and supports the OAuth 2.0 Authorization Code Grant. Key topics will include:

  • OAuth model
  • OAuth support in WSO2 API Manager
  • Application development and OAuth
  • Future direction of WSO2 API Manager in supporting OAuth
