OAuth Assisted Token Flow for Single Page Applications

In this talk, Daniel Lindau, Solution Architect at Curity, will show how OAuth can be integrated into Single Page Applications (SPAs) using the assisted token flow — a new OAuth message exchange pattern introduced at IETF 101. He will contrast it with implicit flow and show how framing, token storage, and other nuances are handled using this new alternative flow. He will highlight the use of the HTML postMessage interface for passing tokens (vis-a-vis redirects used by other flows). He will also demo how this protocol can be used with various JavaScript frameworks, like JQuery, in just a few lines of code. He will conclude by giving a state of the draft and its future.
