Layer 7 OAuth Toolkit

Simplify authentication and authorization for Web and mobile APIs

Simplify authentication and authorization for Web and mobile APIs

 

OAuth is fast becoming a key standard for access management with RESTful APIs. OAuth has the advantage of being:

  • Lightweight, for over-the-air mobile applications
  • Open, to prevent vendor lock-in or insecure integration
  • Optimized for enabling a Single Sign-On user experience with Web properties

Unfortunately, OAuth can also be complex to set up, given the number of actors, token formats, transports and security mechanisms required. Layer 7’s OAuth Toolkit simplifies OAuth implementation for Web and mobile APIs. The OAuth Toolkit makes it possible to use a Layer 7 API Proxy or Gateway as a central point for implementing OAuth. The OAuth Toolkit supports key standards including OAuth 1.0a, OAuth 2.0, SAML 1.1, SAML 2.0, WS-Trust, REST and JSON.
