OAuth is one of the most important but most misunderstood frameworks out there. What you think it is, it probably isn’t. What it actually is, you probably hadn’t considered. Regardless, when you consider the standards, specifications, and common practices interact and fit together, it’s impressive what you can accomplish with minimal effort. In this session, we’ll explore through the most common RFCs that are combined to make powerful, robust, and secure solutions that drive modern software development.

Energetic and descriptive

Great at correcting misunderstandings about OAuth.

A really great look at the intricacies, terms, and pitfalls of OAuth 2.0 and OpenID Connect. Not too deep, but full of all sorts of great information!

Simplest explanation I’ve seen of the gross steps for OAuth, excellent.

Excellent presentation engaging enough that the audience asked good questions, which got answered adroitly because Keith knows his stuff.

Lacked density/content. Alot of generalizations and lead-ins to ancedotes that weren't finished along with name dropping and personal historical make the start slow. Enjoyable and well presented, but assertions lacked supporting evidence and content. General workflow and framework specs could have been extended to include concrete examples of endpoint data. Could have been a great 1/2 hour talk.

The talk was informative and entertaining at the same time. I enjoyed it!

OAuth is a difficult topic and it takes someone who has a deep understanding of it to be table to deliver a talk that clearly illustrates its boundaries and accompanying technologies that turn OAuth into a solution for companies to utilize.

Highly enjoyed this - simple, yet comprehensive.

Helped to clarify some of the differences in v1 vs vs2 as well as openid vs openid connect.

Thanks @john barclay for the feedback!

Since giving this on Tuesday, I've gone through and revamped it with some more diagrams and concrete explanations for giving it at a different conference today.

@John - if we cross paths again, I owe you a beverage as a thank you. That offer doesn't expire. :)
