Application Security: OAuth 2.0 and OpenID Connect

OAuth and OpenID Connect are the two widely used protocols for authentication and authorization of delegated access to third party applications. Not only they provide a common framework that can be implemented across different platforms, but also allow a user to grant limited access to their resources without having to expose their credentials, thus making them inherently more secure. But OAuth can be exploited to steal the access tokens, which can then be used in lieu of user credentials. This presentation will discuss the key concepts related to OAuth and OpenID and the relevant security issues with them. The presentation will also give an insight into how we can mitigate the risks to OAuth and detect the abuse of access tokens
