What’s new in OAuth2.0?

David Recordon

Another IETF meeting is over and the OAuth crowd has met again! Lots of talk has been going on in the OAuth realm partly under the name of WRAP. Now what has WRAP to do with OAuth and what will happen in OAuth2.0 on which work has begun now?

In order to give us a glimpse of what is going on we have been interviewing David Recordon, co-inventor of OpenId and OAuth and now working at Facebook on Open Source and Open Standards. You can find this interview in our podcast „Data without Borders“ or simply click here to get to the episode and the shownotes.

  1. You might want to look at http://hueniverse.com. Eran should be the best person to describe it.

    Then again OAuth2.0 is quite different to OAuth 1.0 (mostly in terms in making things simpler) thus it probably makes more sense to read the 2.0 spec. I guess once the spec if final there will also be more explanation about it.

    Additionally you might want to look at the Facebook developer pages as they describe how they use OAuth 2.0 there, too.

    Hope that helps!

  2. Hi Christian, thanks for keeping us up-to-date with events, but really this article is badly named, since it doesn't tell us anything about "What's new in OAuth2.0", or even what "WRAP" is or anything actually useful beyond:

    "They had a meeting, expect some changes to some specs, here is a video talking to a Facebook employee"

  3. Where is a video? We did an audio podcast IIRC. And while I haven't listened to it again I still think that we discussed problems of old oauth and how they might be solved in OAuth 2.0. Of course things have moved on considerably since then.
