Free Preview: Authenticate Node.js With OAuth 2.0

Introduction

00:27

Authentication is a critical part of almost every web application. Today our users expect more than simple local authentication. They want support for third-party authentication, so they can use a single account to sign in to multiple websites. OAuth and OAuth 2.0 are protocols for doing just that.

In this course, Tuts+ instructor Jeremy McPeak will teach you how to incorporate OAuth 2.0 in your Node.js applications.

If you haven't used OAuth before, learn what OAuth is and why it is used in our Coffee Break Course: Understanding OAuth.
