  • OAuth 1.0 clients

    The OAuth standard framework enables secure, delegated access to services over HTTPS. OAuth provides tokens (sometimes called "valet keys") that provide access to your data that is hosted by a specific service provider. Each token grants access to a specific site for specific resources, for a defined period of time. A later version of this protocol, OAuth 2.0, uses a different data instance type.
