The OAuth 2.0 Authorization Framework

Context

In OAuth 2.0

Problems

  • OAuth 2.0 still depends on shared secrets between services on Web Sites and other internet devices;[1] while most sites are protected by public key certificates, at least until quantum computing arrives.
  • It is still just a collection of parts that can be configured in a wide variety of combinations; most of which are not particularly secure.
