                          The OAuth 1.0 Protocol

Abstract

   OAuth provides a method for clients to access server resources on    behalf of a resource owner (such as a different client or an end-    user).  It also provides a process for end-users to authorize third-    party access to their server resources without sharing their    credentials (typically, a username and password pair), using user-    agent redirections.
