5.14.9 Mobile Authentication

Applications on a mobile device request for authentication and the web server redirects you to the authorization server to authenticate and authorize the server to access your data. When you approve, the web server receives an Access token as part of the redirect URL. After the authorization server grants the token, the application can access the protected data with the Access token. Less confidential applications, such as mobile clients or thick clients use this authentication. For more information about mobile applications, see Section 9.0, Enabling Mobile Access.
