Social Login with OAuth


Implement OAuth-Based Social Login Using a CA API Gateway


OAuth has become the key standard used to implement access control for API-based resources. All CA API Gateways can be used to protect and consume API resources using OAuth 1.0a and OAuth 2.0.

Social Login is a form of Single Sign-On (SSO) that uses existing login information from a social networking service, such as Facebook or Twitter, to sign into a third-party Web site, instead of requiring the user to create a new login for that site.
