20:26 t_dot_zilla hello
20:26 trygvis hi
20:27 t_dot_zilla I just read this article on HMACs
20:27 t_dot_zilla http://www.thebuzzmedia.com/designing-a-secure-rest-api-without-oauth-authentication/
20:27 t_dot_zilla pretty cool
20:28 t_dot_zilla At the end he says that two-legged OAuth is almost identical, the advantage being OAuth has a client lib so it's easier to implement for client dev
20:28 t_dot_zilla im new to the rest server development but I want to use it.
20:29 t_dot_zilla wondering if I should build my server with OAuth or not
20:31 trygvis building your own stuff is usually a bad idea :)
20:32 trygvis but I guess it depends a bit on what kind of clients you expect
20:33 t_dot_zilla I'd like to build a web interface, but I want that web interface to use a restful api
20:34 trygvis then I would start with https and api keys
20:34 t_dot_zilla yes
20:34 t_dot_zilla i know that
20:34 t_dot_zilla but I like the design talked abut in that article
20:34 t_dot_zilla the private key will be loaded by the web site (not shared with actual user)
20:35 foist joined #rest
20:35 t_dot_zilla I want to design the API first
20:36 t_dot_zilla it will make the website implementation much more flexible
20:36 t_dot_zilla plus I don't wantto necessarily build the website... so I can build the API platform and say hey, here is the API, build a website for me
20:41 t_dot_zilla Is there a better method on that HMAC out there for secure APIs?
