In this article I want to show the differences between OpenID and its younger cousin OAuth by providing for each a typical user scenario. First the scenario for OpenID:
OAuth, OpenID…they sound like the same thing and they kind of do vaguely similar things But I’m here to tell you, OAuth is not Open ID . They have a different purpose. I’ve been playing around with OAuth a bit in the past couple weeks and have a grip on what it’s aiming to do and what it’s not aiming to do.
OAuth is an open standard for authorization .
