OAuth secures APIs with a temporary, encrypted access token. This is much more secure than basic authorization, but also harder to implement. Because: which flow should be used in which situation?

This talk will explain OAuth from its fundamentals to the implementation details. I will show a working setup, so when you leave you will be able to create your own secured API.
