Published at LXer:

Let's look at how we would utilize third-party authentication methods. oAuth is an open protocol for secure user authentication across APIs. It allows users to gain limited access to websites by using their Twitter credentials. It's a very sound method of user authentication, and doesn't take too much work to get going.
