OAuth Claims Ontology: Using Claims in OAuth and How They Relate to Scopes

In this presentation, Travis Spencer, CEO of Curity and expert in OAuth, will explain what claims are. He will demonstrate their useful, and show them in the context of the various actors and flows involved in an OAuth-based system. He will go on to explain how they related to the ever-confusing idea of scopes. His presentation will conclude with an explanation of how claims can be used to increase privacy, enhance security, improve UX, and serve in creating more fine-grained access control systems.

Attendees will leave with a better understanding of what OAuth scopes are, the role of claims in API security, and how to authorize access using these concepts when building APIs.
