OAuth

Pamela is freaked out by sites that gather all your logins. So am I. But this is exactly why a group of us got together to create OAuth. OAuth allows you to delegate access to your various accounts without revealing your username and password. All we need now is for all these sites to start using it.

  1. Can’t help but ask – where’s the Google support? Can I use OAuth instead of AuthSub? Does GMail support it? Can I interface with GTalk through OAuth? I’m sure the answer is “we’re working on it”, but i’ve read the spec and it’s not all that complicated and the spec has been done for about 3 months now.

    Google is like Chiwahwah or a Yorkshire Terrier – they bark a lot, but when it comes to the biting – they don’t really do much.
