rhinautheros

Most web applications use cookies to authenticate the browser session after the user has logged in. Cookies suffer from security problems

Rhinautheros aims to implement 2-legged OAuth for authenticating XHR requests, thus closing the CSRF hole.

This project is a work in progress. It is not in a working state yet.

See the talk description, Cookies are bad for you and slides, presented at Open Source Bridge 2011.
