OAuth is a powerful solution for many providers. As with any tool, however, it’s only as powerful as it is understood by the user who chooses it. Understanding what OAuth is and, at the very least, having a general overview of each particular flow is extremely important. In a recent blog post, Daniel Lindau, looked at OAuth, and gave a brief rundown of each flow type.

We are happy to announce the release of Curity 3.1.0 and 3.2.0. Though not a major update, this release includes a lot of fixes and features. In addition to the thousands of tests that run on each commit, we spent a lot of additional time during this release cycle on testing. We added a lot more tests and ways of testing to help us detect issues more quickly. We also made a lot of improvements to the core system, resulting in a more secure and performant base. We noticed that some flows ran over three times faster and were able to sustain 300% more concurrent users. If you’re still on 2.X, you can expect a tremendous speed boost after upgrading!
A forthcoming version of the Curity Identity Server will include a supported Java Virtual Machine (JVM) from Azul Systems, alleviating customers’ concerns about the changes to the Oracle JVM licensing model, support terms, and release cycle.
