OAuth enables a third-party application to obtain limited access to a
protected resource, either on behalf of a resource owner by
orchestrating an approval interaction or by allowing the third-party
application to obtain access on its own behalf.

This document defines how an application client uses credentials
obtained via OAuth over the Simple Authentication and Security Layer
(SASL) to access a protected resource at a resource server.  Thereby,
it enables schemes defined within the OAuth framework for
non-HTTP-based application protocols.

Clients typically store the user's long-term credential.  This does,
however, lead to significant security vulnerabilities, for example,
when such a credential leaks.  A significant benefit of OAuth for
usage in those clients is that the password is replaced by a shared
secret with higher entropy, i.e., the token.  Tokens typically
provide limited access rights and can be managed and revoked
separately from the user's long-term password.

This document is a product of the Common Authentication Technology Next Generation Working Group of the IETF.

This is now a Proposed Standard.

STANDARDS TRACK: This document specifies an Internet Standards Track
protocol for the Internet community, and requests discussion and suggestions
for improvements.  Please refer to the current edition of the Official
Internet Protocol Standards (https://www.rfc-editor.org/standards) for the 
standardization state and status of this protocol.  Distribution of this 
memo is unlimited.
