This document specifies the OAuth protocol authentication method. OAuth allows clients to access server resources on behalf of another party (such a different client or an end user). This document defines an HTTP authentication method which supports the ability to include two sets of credential with each request, one identifying the client and another identifying the resource owner on whose behalf the request is made.
