This document specifies the OAuth protocol web delegation method. OAuth allows clients to access server resources on behalf of another party (such a different client or an end user). This document defines a redirection-based user-agent process for end users to authorize access to clients by substituting their credentials (typically, a username and password pair) with a different set of delegation-specific credentials.
