OAuth 2.0 authorization requests from native apps should only be made
through external user-agents, primarily the user's browser.  This
specification details the security and usability reasons why this is
the case and how native apps and authorization servers can implement
this best practice.

This document is a product of the Web Authorization Protocol Working Group of the IETF.
