Dataware Protocol v2

The Dataware Protocol allows secure communication between:

  • a Dataware User
  • a Dataware Resource
  • an authorization-providing Catalog
  • an interested third party Client

The protocol has two distinct parts, both of which are based upon the OAuth 2.0 Authorization protocol v22:

  • Resource Protocol - where the Datastore asks the Catalog to act on its behalf in managing third party access to its resources.

  • Client Protocol - where a third-party Client asks the Catalog for authorization to access a Datastore's resources.
