main responsibility of AuthorizationRequestService is to present an end user with a form asking
the user to allow or deny the consumer accessing some of the user resources.  <br> <br>Remember
that a third-party consumer redirects the current user to AuthorizationRequestService, for
example, here is how a redirection may happen: <br>{code:xml} <br>Response-Code:
303 <br>Headers: {Location=[http://localhost:8080/services/social/authorize?oauth_token=f4415e16-56ea-465f-9df1-8bd769253a7d]}
<br>{code}  <br> <br>The consumer application asks the current user (the
browser) to go to a new address provided by the Location header and the follow-up request
to AuthorizationRequestService will look like this: <br> <br>{code:xml} <br>Address:
http://localhost:8080/services/social/authorize?oauth_token=f4415e16-56ea-465f-9df1-8bd769253a7d
<br>Http-Method: GET <br>Content-Type:  <br>Headers: { <br>Accept=[text/html,application/xhtml+xml,application/xml;q=0.9,*/*;q=0.8],
   <br>Referer=[http://localhost:8080/services/forms/reservation.jsp],  <br>...
<br>} <br>{code}  <br> <br>First, AuthorizationRequestService will
retrieve [RequestToken|http://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/cxf/trunk/rt/rs/security/oauth-parent/oauth/src/main/java/org/apache/cxf/rs/security/oauth/data/RequestToken.java]
(which extends the base [Token|http://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/cxf/trunk/rt/rs/security/oauth-parent/oauth/src/main/java/org/apache/cxf/rs/security/oauth/data/Token.java]
class) from OAuthDataProvider using the value provided by the &quot;oauth_token&quot;
query parameter.  <br> <br>Next it uses this token (which also links to Client)
to populate an instance of [OAuthAuthorizationData|http://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/cxf/trunk/rt/rs/security/oauth-parent/oauth/src/main/java/org/apache/cxf/rs/security/oauth/data/OAuthAuthorizationData.java]
bean and returns it. OAuthAuthorizationData contains application name and URI properties,
optional list of [Permission|http://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/cxf/trunk/rt/rs/security/oauth-parent/oauth/src/main/java/org/apache/cxf/rs/security/oauth/data/Permission.java]s
and URIs.  <br> <br>Note that if a consumer originally specified a list of scopes
using an &quot;x_oauth_scope&quot; parameter then AuthorizationRequestService will
ask OAuthDataProvider to translate opaque names such as &quot;readCalendar&quot; into
[Permission|http://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/cxf/trunk/rt/rs/security/oauth-parent/oauth/src/main/java/org/apache/cxf/rs/security/oauth/data/Permission.java]s
for a user to see a better description of these scopes. Also a Client representing the third-party
consumer may have been allocated some default scopes during the registration in which case
those scopes will also be taken into account when populating OAuthAuthorizationData. The same
for optional URIs - more on both scopes and URIs below. <br> <br>Two other important
OAuthAuthorizationData properties are oauthToken and authenticityToken, both are important
for processing the decision request coming from the authorization form. The former is a request
token key which will be used by AuthorizationRequestService to retrieve the RequestToken again
and the latter for validating that the current session has not been hijacked - AuthorizationRequestService
generates a random key, stores this in Servlet HTTPSession and expects the returned authenticityToken
value match it - this is a recommended approach and it also implies that the authenticityToken
value is kept is hidden from a user, for example, it&#39;s kept in a &#39;hidden&#39;
form field. <br> <br>So the populated OAuthAuthorizationData is finally returned.
Note that it&#39;s a JAXB XMLRootElement-annotated bean and can be processed by registered
JAXB or JSON providers given that AuthorizationRequestService supports producing &quot;application/xml&quot;
and &quot;application/json&quot; (See the OAuth Without Browser section below for
more). But in this case we have the end user working with a browser so an HTML form is what
is really expected back. <br> <br>AuthorizationRequestService supports producing
&quot;text/html&quot; and it simply relies on a registered [RequestDispatcherProvider|http://cxf.apache.org/docs/jax-rs-redirection.html#JAX-RSRedirection-WithRequestDispatcherProvider]
to set the OAuthAuthorizationData bean as HttpServletRequest attribute and redirect to a view
handler (can be JSP or some other servlet) to actually build the form and return it to the
user. Alternatively, registering [XSLTJaxbProvider|http://cxf.apache.org/docs/jax-rs-advanced-xml.html#JAX-RSAdvancedXML-XSLTsupport]
would also be a good option for creating HTML views.   <br> <br>Assuming RequestDispatcherProvider
is used, the following example log shows the response from AuthorizationRequestService: <br>

<h1><a name="JAX-RSOAuth-Introduction"></a>Introduction</h1>

<p>CXF 2.5.0 implements <a href="http://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc5849" class="external-link"
rel="nofollow">OAuth 1.0</a>. </p>

<p>While <a href="http://oauth.net/2/" class="external-link" rel="nofollow">OAuth
2.0</a> (which is very close to becoming the final recommendation) is the next major
version of OAuth, OAuth 1.0 is being supported by many providers and the CXF OAuth module
should make it easy for developers to start writing OAuth applications, be it OAuth 1.0 or
OAuth 2.0 once the latter gets implemented.   </p>

<p>OAuth offers a complex yet elegant solution toward helping the end users (resource
owners) authorize third-party providers to access their resources.</p>

<p>The classical OAuth flow is also called a 3-leg OAuth flow as it involves 3 parties:
the end user (resource owner), the third party service (client, consumer) and the resource
server which is protected by OAuth filters. Typically a consumer offers a service feature
that an end user requests and which requires the former to access one or more resources of
this end user which are located at the resource server. For example, the consumer may need
to access the end user's photos in order to print them and post to the user or read and possibly
update a user's calendar in order to make a booking.</p>

<p>In order to make it happen, the third-party service application/consumer needs to
register itself with the OAuth server. This happens out-of-band and after the registration
the consumer gets back a consumer key and secret pair. For example, see this page for one
<a href="http://code.google.com/apis/accounts/docs/RegistrationForWebAppsAuto.html" class="external-link"
rel="nofollow">approach</a>. The registrations of third-party application does not
have to be very involved for simpler applications.  </p>

<p>From then on, the typical flows works like this:<br/>
1. End User requests the third-party service using a browser.</p>

<p>2. Third-party service requests a temporarily request token from OAuth RequestToken
Service; this token will represent a consumer's intention to access whatever end user resources
it needs to complete the current user's request.</p>

<p>3. After getting a request token back, the consumer redirects the end user to OAuth
Authorization Service and adds the request token to the target URI.</p>

<p>4. Authorization Service will get all the details about the current consumer using
a request token, build an HTML form and return it to the end user. The form will ask the user
if a given third-party application can be allowed to access some resources on behalf of this
user.     </p>

<p>5. If the user approves it then Authorization Service will redirect the user back
to the callback uri provided by the consumer when requesting a request token, including a
generated verifier (authorization key) which 'links' the user's approval with the request
token. </p>

<p>6. Now the third-party service requests an access token from OAuth AccessToken Service
by providing a request token and its verifier. </p>

<p>7. After getting an access token token, the service finally proceeds with accessing
the current user's resources and completes the user's request.</p>

<p>As noted above, the consumer needs to register first with the OAuth server. It's
a good practice to provide an application name and so called connect URI which is typically
a public URI of this application; the former will be used by OAuth Authorization Service at
step 4 above and the latter will be used at step 2 to validate the provided callback URI to
make sure it starts from the URI which was actually provided during the registration.</p>

<p>As you can see the flow can be complex yet it is functional. A number of issues may
need to be taken care along the way such as managing expired tokens, making sure that the
OAuth security layer is functioning properly and is not interfering with the end user itself
trying to access its own resources, etc.</p>

<p>CXF JAX-RS gives the best effort to making this process as simple as possible and
requiring only a minimum effort on behalf of OAuth server developers.<br/>
It also offers the utility code for greatly simplifying the way the third-party application
can interact with the OAuth service endpoints.</p>

<p>Now, as far this particular 3-leg flow is concerned, OAuth 2.0 simplifies it by effectively
making the steps 3 and 6 (requests for request and access tokens) redundant. Moving to OAuth
2.0 will be straightforward after learning how to build OAuth 1.0 servers with CXF. </p>

available on the WEB for more information you may need to know about OAuth. </p>

<h1><a name="JAX-RSOAuth-DevelopingOAuthServers"></a>Developing OAuth Servers</h1>

<p>OAuth server is the core piece of the complete OAuth-based solution. Typically it
contains 3 services for:</p>
<ul class="alternate" type="square">
	<li>Initiating the flows by issuing temporarily tokens to consumers</li>
	<li>Authorizing request tokens by asking the end users to let consumers access some
of their resources and returning the<br/>
  confirmation back to the consumer</li>
	<li>Exchanging authorized request tokens for access tokens</li>
</ul>


<p>CXF offers 3 JAX-RS service implementations that can be used to create functional
OAuth servers fast: <a href="http://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/cxf/trunk/rt/rs/security/oauth-parent/oauth/src/main/java/org/apache/cxf/rs/security/oauth/services/RequestTokenService.java"
class="external-link" rel="nofollow">RequestTokenService</a>, <a href="http://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/cxf/trunk/rt/rs/security/oauth-parent/oauth/src/main/java/org/apache/cxf/rs/security/oauth/services/AuthorizationRequestService.java"
class="external-link" rel="nofollow">AuthorizationRequestService</a> and <a href="http://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/cxf/trunk/rt/rs/security/oauth-parent/oauth/src/main/java/org/apache/cxf/rs/security/oauth/services/AccessTokenService.java"
class="external-link" rel="nofollow">AccessTokenService</a>.</p>

<p>All of these 3 services rely on the custom <a href="http://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/cxf/trunk/rt/rs/security/oauth-parent/oauth/src/main/java/org/apache/cxf/rs/security/oauth/provider/OAuthDataProvider.java"
class="external-link" rel="nofollow">OAuthDataProvider</a> which manages request
and access tokens. Writing your own OAuthDataProvider implementations is what is needed to
get the OAuth server up and running.</p>

<h2><a name="JAX-RSOAuth-RequestTokenService"></a>RequestTokenService  </h2>

<p>The main responsibility of <a href="http://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/cxf/trunk/rt/rs/security/oauth-parent/oauth/src/main/java/org/apache/cxf/rs/security/oauth/services/RequestTokenService.java"
class="external-link" rel="nofollow">RequestTokenService</a> is to create a temporarily
request token and return it back to the consumer. It supports POST and GET requests and return
a form payload containing the new request token and its secret.</p>

<p>Here is an example request log:</p>
<div class="code panel" style="border-width: 1px;"><div class="codeContent panelContent">
<pre class="code-xml">
Address: http://localhost:8080/services/oauth/initiate
Encoding: ISO-8859-1

                     oauth_nonce=<span class="code-quote">"e365fa02-772e-4e33-900d-00a766ccadf8"</span>,

                     oauth_consumer_key=<span class="code-quote">"123456789"</span>,

                     oauth_signature_method=<span class="code-quote">"HMAC-SHA1"</span>,

}
</pre>
</div></div>

<p>It is an empty POST request which includes an Authorization OAuth header. The value
of the header has a consumer key (obtained during the third-party registration), callback
URI pointing to where AuthorizationRequestService will return an authorized token and a signature
which was calculated using a consumer key and secret pair as <a href="http://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc5849#section-3.4.2"
class="external-link" rel="nofollow">described in the specification</a>.</p>

<p>First RequestTokenService validates the signature and then it retrieves a <a href="http://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/cxf/trunk/rt/rs/security/oauth-parent/oauth/src/main/java/org/apache/cxf/rs/security/oauth/data/Client.java"
class="external-link" rel="nofollow">Client</a> instance from OAuthDataProvider using
a consumer key.</p>

<p>Before asking OAuthDataProvider to generate a request token, it attempts to validate
a callback URI against a <a href="http://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/cxf/trunk/rt/rs/security/oauth-parent/oauth/src/main/java/org/apache/cxf/rs/security/oauth/data/Client.java"
class="external-link" rel="nofollow">Client</a>'s application URI.</p>

<p>Finally it delegates to OAuthDataProvider to create a request token, passing to it
a populated <a href="http://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/cxf/trunk/rt/rs/security/oauth-parent/oauth/src/main/java/org/apache/cxf/rs/security/oauth/data/RequestTokenRegistration.java"
class="external-link" rel="nofollow">RequestTokenRegistration</a> bean. </p>

<p>This bean references a Client instance, callback URI and a state. State is something
that a consumer may also include during the request token request using a "state" parameter
and will be returned back to the consumer alongside the verifier after the request token has
been authorized. For example, it may represent a key that a consumer will use to retrieve
the state of the request that it was processing when requesting a token. For OAuth 1.0<br/>
consumers, the request token itself may represent a good enough key for such purposes, but
"state" may need to be used too and will become more useful for OAuth 2.0.</p>

<p>The bean also includes "issuedAt" and "lifetime" values which represent the time
a new token is about to be created and a configurable time in milliseconds that this token
will 'live' for. OAuthDataProvider will be free to reset those values if needed before actually
creating a request token.</p>

<p>Finally, two more properties may be set on this bean instance: list of scopes and
uris. List of scopes represents optional permissions that the consumer may need to access
the resources and a list of URIs represents an optional list of relative URIs the consumer
will want to use. These can be provided by "x_oauth_scope" (just "scope" in OAuth 2.0) and
"x_oauth_uri" request parameters, for example,</p>

<div class="code panel" style="border-width: 1px;"><div class="codeContent panelContent">
<pre class="code-xml">
Authorization=[OAuth ..., 
                     x_oauth_scope=<span class="code-quote">"readCalendar updateCalendar"</span>,

                     x_oauth_uri=<span class="code-quote">"/calendar"</span>]
</pre>
</div></div>  

<p>These two parameters will be covered later.</p>

<p>After a new request token has been created by OAuthDataProvider, RequestTokenService
returns the token key and secret pair to the consumer:</p>

<div class="code panel" style="border-width: 1px;"><div class="codeContent panelContent">
<pre class="code-xml">
Response-Code: 200
Content-Type: application/x-www-form-urlencoded

</pre>
</div></div>

<p>The consumer is now ready to redirect the current end user to <a href="http://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/cxf/trunk/rt/rs/security/oauth-parent/oauth/src/main/java/org/apache/cxf/rs/security/oauth/services/AuthorizationRequestService.java"
class="external-link" rel="nofollow">AuthorizationRequestService</a>.</p>

<h2><a name="JAX-RSOAuth-AuthorizationRequestService"></a>AuthorizationRequestService</h2>

<p>The main responsibility of AuthorizationRequestService is to present an end user
with a form asking the user to allow or deny the consumer accessing some of the user resources.
</p>

<p>Remember that a third-party consumer redirects the current user to AuthorizationRequestService,
for example, here is how a redirection may happen:</p>
<div class="code panel" style="border-width: 1px;"><div class="codeContent panelContent">
<pre class="code-xml">
Response-Code: 303
Headers: {Location=[http://localhost:8080/services/social/authorize?oauth_token=f4415e16-56ea-465f-9df1-8bd769253a7d]}
</pre>
</div></div> 

<p>The consumer application asks the current user (the browser) to go to a new address
provided by the Location header and the follow-up request to AuthorizationRequestService will
look like this:</p>

<div class="code panel" style="border-width: 1px;"><div class="codeContent panelContent">
<pre class="code-xml">
Address: http://localhost:8080/services/social/authorize?oauth_token=f4415e16-56ea-465f-9df1-8bd769253a7d

Content-Type:

Referer=[http://localhost:8080/services/forms/reservation.jsp], 
...
}
</pre>
</div></div> 

<p>First, AuthorizationRequestService will retrieve <a href="http://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/cxf/trunk/rt/rs/security/oauth-parent/oauth/src/main/java/org/apache/cxf/rs/security/oauth/data/RequestToken.java"
class="external-link" rel="nofollow">RequestToken</a> (which extends the base <a
href="http://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/cxf/trunk/rt/rs/security/oauth-parent/oauth/src/main/java/org/apache/cxf/rs/security/oauth/data/Token.java"
class="external-link" rel="nofollow">Token</a> class) from OAuthDataProvider using
the value provided by the "oauth_token" query parameter. </p>

<p>Next it uses this token (which also links to Client) to populate an instance of <a
href="http://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/cxf/trunk/rt/rs/security/oauth-parent/oauth/src/main/java/org/apache/cxf/rs/security/oauth/data/OAuthAuthorizationData.java"
class="external-link" rel="nofollow">OAuthAuthorizationData</a> bean and returns
it. OAuthAuthorizationData contains application name and URI properties, optional list of
<a href="http://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/cxf/trunk/rt/rs/security/oauth-parent/oauth/src/main/java/org/apache/cxf/rs/security/oauth/data/Permission.java"
class="external-link" rel="nofollow">Permission</a>s and URIs. </p>

<p>Note that if a consumer originally specified a list of scopes using an "x_oauth_scope"
parameter then AuthorizationRequestService will ask OAuthDataProvider to translate opaque
names such as "readCalendar" into <a href="http://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/cxf/trunk/rt/rs/security/oauth-parent/oauth/src/main/java/org/apache/cxf/rs/security/oauth/data/Permission.java"
class="external-link" rel="nofollow">Permission</a>s for a user to see a better description
of these scopes. Also a Client representing the third-party consumer may have been allocated
some default scopes during the registration in which case those scopes will also be taken
into account when populating OAuthAuthorizationData. The same for optional URIs - more on
both scopes and URIs below.</p>

<p>Two other important OAuthAuthorizationData properties are oauthToken and authenticityToken,
both are important for processing the decision request coming from the authorization form.
The former is a request token key which will be used by AuthorizationRequestService to retrieve
the RequestToken again and the latter for validating that the current session has not been
hijacked - AuthorizationRequestService generates a random key, stores this in Servlet HTTPSession
and expects the returned authenticityToken value match it - this is a recommended approach
and it also implies that the authenticityToken value is kept is hidden from a user, for example,
it's kept in a 'hidden' form field.</p>

<p>So the populated OAuthAuthorizationData is finally returned. Note that it's a JAXB
XMLRootElement-annotated bean and can be processed by registered JAXB or JSON providers given
that AuthorizationRequestService supports producing "application/xml" and "application/json"
(See the OAuth Without Browser section below for more). But in this case we have the end user
working with a browser so an HTML form is what is really expected back.</p>

<p>AuthorizationRequestService supports producing "text/html" and it simply relies on
a registered <a href="http://cxf.apache.org/docs/jax-rs-redirection.html#JAX-RSRedirection-WithRequestDispatcherProvider"
class="external-link" rel="nofollow">RequestDispatcherProvider</a> to set the OAuthAuthorizationData
bean as HttpServletRequest attribute and redirect to a view handler (can be JSP or some other
servlet) to actually build the form and return it to the user. Alternatively, registering
<a href="http://cxf.apache.org/docs/jax-rs-advanced-xml.html#JAX-RSAdvancedXML-XSLTsupport"
class="external-link" rel="nofollow">XSLTJaxbProvider</a> would also be a good option
for creating HTML views.  </p>

<p>Assuming RequestDispatcherProvider is used, the following example log shows the response
from AuthorizationRequestService:</p>

<p>Fine tuning the current OAuth 1.0 will be continued and the feedback from the implementers
will be welcomed.<br/>
OAuth 2.0 is going to become a very major specification in the whole RESTful space and CXF
will implement the selected OAuth 2.0 profiles. Among other things, OAuth 2.0 will also rely
on SAML in one of the extensions and we'll look into it too. Writing a complete OAuth application
will most likely require some SSO solution so some support from CXF is likely to come too.</p>
