REST-based web services and APIs can leverage OAuth 2.0 for API protection. In the OAuth 2.0 terminology, the API will act as the Resource Server (RS). As a request is made to the API, an OAuth access_token will be presented as a bearer token in the "authorization" HTTP header. The API will validate this token and use the attributes provided in the token to authorize access to the API.
