Importance Of OAuth2 and Implemeting OAuth2 Standards In Drupal - Himanshu Dixit - FOSSASIA 2018

Published on: Saturday, 24 March 2018

Speaker: Himanshu Dixit

OAuth is a way of telling your Social Provider like Facebook. that they can share parts of your information (not everything) with other websites, without revealing your super duper secret password to these other websites. In other words, it's a way of providing permission which also includes authentication.

As Google Summer Of Project, I implemented OAuth2 Library "The League OAuth2" in modules of Drupal Social Initiative. We also released 2.x Version of these modules, which had streamlined authentication system, easily to implemented and were more secure.

This talk will be based on why you should use protocol standards such as OAuth2 over traditional login based approach.
