OpenId support in spring is great, it would be even better to have the possibility to manage also facebook users.

I understand FB use the oauth 2.0 protocol and for that purpose, as using openid4java to implement openif, it could be used http://spring-security-oauth.codehaus.org/tutorial.html to officially implement it in spring security

Just another note for the records: twitter has now turned on using solely OAuth for authentication and that would be another interesting plus.

The spring-security-oauth code is already hosted on the SpringSource git server: http://git.springsource.org/spring-security. It will remain as an independent project rather than being added to the core.

For Facebook support, you probably want to look at Spring Social: http://git.springsource.org/spring-social.

@spring-issuemaster spring-issuemaster added this to the 3.1.0.M2 milestone Feb 5, 2016
