Many services such as Facebook, GitHub, and Google have already deployed OAuth 2.0 servers. The OAuth 2.0 spec leaves many decisions up to the implementer. Instead of describing the possible decisions that need to be made to successfully implement OAuth 2.0, this lecture will explain most of the appropriate decisions to make for most implementations. This lecture is an attempt to explain OAuth 2.0 in a simplified format to help developers and service providers implement the protocol. Attendees will also discover how they can use other people's OAuth servers instead of implementing their own.
