Authentication and Security

If fine-grain authentication and security are required, my current recommendation is to use a combination of HTTP Basic Authentication and SSL. You should be able to accomplish this gracefully with onTaffyRequest. As of Taffy 1.3, the method getBasicAuthCredentials() was added to aid in this process.

Note: HTTP Basic Auth is sent in clear-text, and as such, you should NEVER use it in production code without SSL, because it would be trivial for someone sniffing the traffic to see the credentials. (Firesheep)


So far I am only experienced as a user of OAuth, not a developer. For that reason, I haven't gotten around to implementing any OAuth functionality in Taffy either, though it is something I would like to do at some point. If you would like to contribute, please get in touch with me or just fork and send me a pull request. :)
