Join Keith Casey for an in-depth discussion in this video Authorization for mobile apps and SPA, part of Web Security: OAuth and OpenID Connect.
- [Instructor] The second grant type we'll cover…is the implicit or the hybrid flow.…Now technically, these are two separate flows,…but the differences between them are so small,…that everyone groups them together into one.…So for our purposes, we'll consider them one.…This grant type is a little unique from the others,…and that's designed specifically for…applications we can't trust.…Or more properly, this is for applications…that we can't trust to keep secrets,…such as mobile apps or single-page applications.…Both of which can have their source code inspected…by curious or malicious users.…
Therefore, this grant type does not use the client_secret,…unlike all of our other flows.…This is also our first grant type which…explicitly attaches a user to the process.…As in it takes a user to explicitly authenticate…and authorize the application to act on their behalf.…In practice, this is what it looks like.…The user navigates to a page,…and the application hits something…that's a protected resource.…It could be anything from an API…
