OAuth 2.0 and the Road to Hell. They say the road to hell is paved with good intentions.
Well, that’s OAuth 2.0. Last month I reached the painful conclusion that I can no longer be associated with the OAuth 2.0 standard. I resigned my role as lead author and editor, withdraw my name from the specification, and left the working group. Removing my name from a document I have painstakingly labored over for three years and over two dozen drafts was not easy. Labs/Weave/Identity/Account Manager. The Account Manager project aims to produce: A protocol definition that sites can use to define their account-and-session management features in a format a web browser can understand.
