OAuth is an open standard for authorization. OAuth provides a method for clients to access server resources on behalf of a resource owner. It also provides a process for end-users to authorize third-party access to their server resources without sharing their credentials, using user-agent redirections. OAuth is a service that is complementary to, and therefore distinct from, OpenID. OAuth is also distinct from OATH, which is a reference architecture for authentication.
