Using an API Gateway as an OAuth 1.0/1.0a Server & Client


This video tutorial focuses on how the CA OAuth Toolkit can be used with the OAuth 1.0/1.0a standard for delegated authorization. It demonstrates a sample application that uses OAuth 1.0a to expose an interface that:

  • Enables consuming applications to request access tokens
  • Allows users to authorize these consuming applications 

The video shows:

  • How the OAuth Toolkit makes it possible to implement this in a CA API Gateway, with a single policy fragment
  • How the consuming application can be modified to work with common OAuth providers such as Twitter or LinkedIn
