17:18 danielemm hi guys. I would to make a simple RESTful service for a mobile app. My idea is to avoid OAuth and use hmac authentication. I've found several articles online but I'm still a bit confused abour registration process. How can I deal a new user registration? A request should include both new username and password... but it seems to be so insecure....any idea?
17:18 spaceone insecure?
17:19 spaceone force HTTPS
17:21 danielemm The idea is this. Both client and server has the private key. On user registration I could encrypt username and password and send it with my request to the server (using the hmac approach). If it's okay I reply to the client OK and I can pass user/pass encrypted (or a md5 of both) at each other new request
17:21 danielemm it should be okay
17:22 spaceone i don't understand the md5 thing
17:22 danielemm it's to avoid to send user+pass each time
17:23 spaceone yes

20:00 spaceone self descriptive messages means that the message which is transferred between two components contains not only data but also metadata, metadata about the metadata / controldata... anything more?
