OAuth Security Workshop 2018


The OAuth Security Workshop (OSW) aim is to improve the security of OAuth and related Internet protocols by a direct exchange of views between academic researchers, IETF OAuth Working Group members and industry. The workshop is hosted by the Security and Trust research unit of the Bruno Kessler Foundation (FBK).

While the standardization process of OAuth ensures extensive reviews (both security and non-security related), further analysis by security experts from academia and industry is essential to ensure high quality specifications. Contributions to this workshop can help to improve the security of the Web and the Internet.

Scope and Topics

We seek position papers related to OAuth, OpenID Connect, and other technologies using OAuth under the hood. Contributions regarding technologies that are used in OAuth, such as JOSE, or impact the security of OAuth, such as Web technology, are also welcome.

Areas of interest where OAuth can be used as enabler of innovative scenarios include:

  • IoT, SmartCities and Industry 4.0. 
  • Mobile and Strong authentication. 
  • Federated Identity.
  • Privacy-enhancing technologies.
