Support for OAuth protocol
The OAuth 2.0 protocol and its OpenID Connect extension build a framework that enables applications to outsource user authentication to a centralized service and to provide access to a remote resource on behalf of the user. This chapter describes how Sentinet provides support for OAuth and OpenID Connect. For more information on OAuth 2.0, OpenID Connect and their value, follow some of the links below.
Sentinet virtual service can be configured with OAuth security on the virtual service inbound side, Service OAuth security; or on the virtual service outbound side, Client OAuth security. OAuth security can also be configured independently on both sides at the same time (Service and Client OAuth security).
