OAuth – Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

OAuth is an open protocol, initiated by Blaine Cook and Chris Messina, to allow secure API authorization in a simple and standard method for desktop, mobile and web applications.

For consumer developers, OAuth is a method to publish and interact with protected data. For service provider developers, OAuth gives users access to their data while protecting their account credentials. In other words, OAuth allows a user to grant access to their information on one site (the Service Provider), to another site (called Consumer), without sharing all of his or her identity.
