Should we use oAuth when there is no user? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    OAuth2 is often recommended as the security way to go. But as I start reading about what is really covers, it seems that it specifically talks about the scenario where you have a user (me), an intermidiate of some sort (my mail app) and the source (my hotmail account). Is this correct understood? 

    So what if we have no user. We have a WCF service. This service can be used by web pages (JSON) and other services (XML). Would we implement oAuth here? Or are there better ways (not simpler but better) to accomplish such B2B authentication?
