As we learned with web and mobile applications, federating API and web services security can greatly increase the flexibility of the APIs and services. By federating, you are replacing username/passwords with tokens allowing an external authentication system to handle the authentication complexity. This in turn allows APIs and services to use that token to authorise access to resources rather than manage the authentication process themselves.
