  Description     : open protocol to allow secure API authentication

OAuth is a simple way to publish and interact with protected data.  It allows
the User to grant access to their private resources on one site (the Service
Provider), to another site (the Consumer, not to be confused with the User).
While OpenID is all about using a single identity to sign into many sites, OAuth
is about giving access to your stuff without sharing your identity at all (or
its secret parts).
