EFF-Austin, a local organization in the Electronic Frontier Alliance, (not EFF) will host this event:

OAuth: The most widely used online authorization protocol

From the Organizers:

Our speaker this month is Daniel Roesler. Daniel is the founder and CTO of UtilityAPI, a clean energy software company specializing in utility customer authorizations and data access. He also maintains multiple privacy and security open-source projects.

Need to connect two websites or apps? Want to login using your social media account? Congrats! You've probably used the OAuth protocol.

The OAuth protocol describes how websites and apps can securely grant another website or app access to a user's account with that user's authorization... without sharing login credentials! It is the most widely used online authorization protocol today, and is the building block for many other authentication and authorization protocols.

In this presentation, we'll explore why the OAuth protocol exists, how it works step-by-step, and build a real integration that uses OAuth.
