What is OAuth (Open Authorization)?

OAuth (Open Authorization) is an open standard for token-based authentication and authorization which is used to provide single sign-on (SSO). OAuth doesn’t share password data but instead uses authorization tokens to prove an identity between consumers and service providers. OAuth is an authentication protocol that allows you to approve one application interacting with another on your behalf without giving away your password.

Applications that support login using third party services generally prompt the user to authenticate themselves by giving options like “Login With Facebook” or “Login With Google” etc. thus, allowing the user to use their credentials to login with the third party service. In response, the service sends the access token to the requesting application which proves the authenticity of the user who is requesting access. The token is then used for making requests to resources required by the end-user.OAuth is suitable for both browser and mobile applications and it is widely used for customer application and API access. Baically, OAuth uses JSON to transfer messages between applications & uses HTTP for requesting and receiving tokens.

More Secure authentication with Two-Factor Authentication

The most practical way to strengthen authentication is to require a second factor after the username/password stage. Since a password is something that a user knows, ensuring that the user also has something or using biometrics thwarts attackers that steal or gain access to passwords.

Traditional two-factor authentication solutions use hardware tokens (or "fobs") that users carry on their keychains. These tokens generate one-time passwords for the second stage of the login process. However, hardware tokens can cost up to $40 each. It takes time and effort to distribute them, tracks who has which one, and replace them when they break. They're easy to lose, hard to use, and users consistently report high levels of frustration with token-based systems.


Your choice of the second factor

miniOrange authentication service has 15+ authentication methods.

You can choose from any of the above authentication methods to augment your password based authentication. miniOrange authentication service works with all phone types, from landlines to smart-phone platforms. In the simplest case, users just answer a phone call and press a button to authenticate. miniOrange authentication service works internationally and has customers authenticating from many countries around the world.
