Understanding OAuth2 « BubbleCode by Johann Reinke

What is OAuth2? OAuth2 is, you guessed it, the version 2 of the OAuth protocol (also called framework). This protocol allows third-party applications to grant limited access to an HTTP service, either on behalf of a resource owner or by allowing the third-party application to obtain access on its own behalf. Access is requested by a client, it can be a website or a mobile application for example. Version 2 is expected to simplify the previous version of the protocol and to facilitate interoperability between different applications. Specifications are still being drafted and the protocol is constantly evolving but that does not prevent it from being implemented and acclaimed by several internet giants such as Google or Facebook.

The OAuth 2 spec can be a bit confusing to read, so I've written this post to help describe the terminology in a simplified format. The core spec leaves many decisions up to the implementer, often based on security tradeoffs of the implementation. Instead of describing all possible decisions that need to be made to successfully implement OAuth 2, this post makes decisions that are appropriate for most implementations.

How to register an OAuth 2.0 client / OpenID Connect relying party

First and foremost this establishes the credentials for identifying and authenticating the client in the requests that will follow. Second, this sets up various global client settings, such as the preferred crypto algorithm for the ID tokens that will be issued to the client. Without these settings there won't be enough context to complete many of the client requests, as the OAuth requests are designed to be fairly minimal and carry few parameters. Upon sign up, the registrant, which can be the developer, an administrator, or the client software itself (yes, automated self-registration is possible) needs to provide several pieces of information: The methods, or grant types in OAuth jargon, that the client will use to obtain the end-user's authorisation and tokens.
