REST authentication, Best approach
Request the login and password for every page is more suitable and more secure(that what I do in my projects), using 'virtual' and stored session in the database may be a second solution but not a good because it will be an additional charge for the DB.

Twitter Authentication with REST API
Firstly your parameters have to be sorted lexigraphically (alphabetically) before they are encoded, you need to switch the positions of oauth_callback and oauth_consumer_key. Secondly, for an unauthorized request token, you calculate the signing key using your consumer secret appended with the '&' character. You have appended the secret a second time after the ampersand. Thirdly in your request body you should use oauth_consumer instead of appId as the name of your parameter. Try those fixes and see if it works.

See Sinatra API Authentication. Quick summary: Sinatra has no built-in auth. It's best to build auth yourself (see the link). There are gems available, but you probably won't need them for something as simple as an API.

user-authentication from remote site?
I'd recommend using jquery requests. You can send the username and password (encrypted, of course) to the remote site and get back a cookie/session key. If you have access to the database, I'd also recommend doing that. For example, if the remote host is using MySQL, ask to have a view created for your user and then you can authenticate directly. With this approach, however, you may have to set up a MySQL connection outside of settings.py.

REST authentication and HMAC/private key (when do I set it?)
I think you need to provide more details about your application and how it will be used. There are many ways you can do REST authentication. Some of them are standard, some not. These are just some examples: Basic authentication over SSL Digest authentication Various kinds of token authentication (OAuth 2, SPNEGO, various STS) HMAC Client SSL Certificates Signed/encrypted cookies. In case of Amazon S3, they give you "AWS secret access key" when you register. Later your application code needs to know secret key to be able to compute signatures (or it needs to know signed request/url) So ultimately "secret access key" is transmitted over the wire at least once initially during registration. If you use public key cryptography (like client SSL certificates) - you can avoid transmitting p

User authentication through my REST API and Facebook
My 2 cents.. The process looks good to me.. I would re-issue the token on each sign in and also keep it inside a database so tokens can be revoked easily. Use PassportJS. Its got support for OAuth flows and supports many 3rd party integrations like FB, Twitter, Github etc..and since its a nodejs middleware.. its integration will be very tight within your application..

Authentication web service rest java
You can do the authentication in REST web services through different ways. The simplest is the BASIC authentication. When the server wants the user agent to authenticate itself towards the server, it can send a request for authentication. This request should be sent using the HTTP 401 Not Authorized response code containing a WWW-Authenticate HTTP header. The WWW-Authenticate header for basic authentication (used most often) is constructed as following: WWW-Authenticate: Basic realm="insert realm" From the web server/application perspective, you need to intercept the request using filters. In your filter class you can inspect for the request's HTTP headers and then do the validation. If validated you can forward the request to the actual web service otherwise simply send a 401 response.

Authentication for a REST based web app architecture
The first thing..."do I need to make the authentication on the web app and the web service, or can the web app verify the login through the web service?" ......Both are possible...depends upon your choice and implementation. But to make the flow uniform in all cases to use DB, the call from web app should go to web service as you shown in diagram. I think while login, the client should call web app server and the web app calls to web service to look into DB for checking the credentials. There can be many ways..sometimes web app use AJAX heavily and from client itself they call the REST service directly to get data or to check the credentials.

How to implement Authentication as a Web Service (Symfony2, REST)
As the symfony Ecosystem is big, take a look at the FOSRestBundle for creating the API. Then there is the NelmioApiDocBundle for easy documentation of your REST-API. For authenticating you should consider OAuth, so take a look at the FOSOAuthServerBundle. With all three combined you can create a great API. Also read this article, about REST APIs with Symfony2: The Right Way

Yammer REST API > Authentication without user input
A friend helped me out with this one. Most social network APIs use OAuth three-legged authentication which allows a user to give authorization to a service without presenting (or making another) login. This is by design. Circumventing the authentication portion may be possible, but ethical questions come into play.

How exactly to implement challenge-response for REST API authentication?
You should simply use HTTP Basic auth for every request, through the Authorization header, and have all your interactions over SSL. If you want basic security, there's no need to go beyond that. There are several problems with the scheme you have in mind. Your last step is essentially a server-side session, which isn't acceptable in REST. MD5 is effectively broken and shouldn't be used for anything but integrity checking. In REST, you should use the standardized authentication method provided by the protocol if it fits your needs. Reinventing it to use URI parameters like you have in mind is unnecessary. The hashing scheme you have in mind only makes sense when you want to sign the request, guaranteeing it wasn't tampered with.

authentication for a REST Api designed for 1 consumer and heavy use
It depends on your audience. If this is for internal consumption only, checking the ip or adding basic auth through https should be more than enough. If you are planning on exposing your business to other clients, then you might want to implement a more complex auth mechanism. I like what Amazon uses but you guys can tweak this to meet your own needs.

Two Factor Authentication with Basic Auth for REST API?
You can technically make up new authentication schemes to extend from HTTP Basic Auth, but they generally won't be supported by browsers. In your example, I don't believe any browser would be able to natively ask for and send username:password:token in the same way they can easily ask for username and password. Generally two-factor authentication schemes work by putting the user into an intermediary state using some form of sessions as you mentioned in your second example. A user who has passed the first factor, say username/password via Basic Auth, has a session opened but not marked as really logged in until they also pass the second factor. Inputting a dongle code or something like that. Once both factors are passed their session is marked as fully logged in and they can access their a

REST / Web based authentication-as-a-service a possibility?
The service API should largely live independent of your authentication mechanism, so I'd recommend starting this behind a simple password protected folder or some such. In my opinion it would be better to make sure you're API works and can gain traction. Meaning it'll be more a long term project. Nothing kills a project quicker than focusing on the painful stuff right out of the box. As far as what service to use? It's non-trivial to setup security well. So for a small startup project, it's probably more cost-effective to integrate with another service. Might take a look at Mozilla Persona. It's built on Node and pretty straight forward. If you do try to roll your own get some outside expertise, and DON'T do stupid stuff like use a hashing algorithm like SHA1 to store passwords. Instead

REST API authentication by Angular web app and Android devices
Get FOS User Bundle. In your user entity you could add a type property to check what type of user it is (this is easy to get started). You can also define different user roles (worth checking out). Then also make a property "IMEI". Now you have your user accounts unified. For logging in with AngularJS you can take a look at the code of FOS User Bundle. Take a look at how the values "username" and "password" are taken from the form and processed by the bundle. You can then use this method to login the user with your REST API. For your IMEI users you can do a google search on "how to login programatically in symfony2". Then you can write your own code that checks the IMEI number only (no password) and logs in the user.

authentication when creating table synonym in remote server
The answer to your question is going to depend a lot on what database platform you are using to contain the synonym; in your question, you referenced documentation from at least two (SQL Server and Informix). I don't know much about Informix, but I'm going to assume that it's security model is different than SQL Server. For SQL Server, the remote server must be set up as a linked server first (assuming that you are using a remote object). See http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms188279.aspx for details on how to do that.

How to keep the REST authentication credentials in AngularJS on page reload?
Hmm, this is a tricky one. One possible solution is to use some combination of e.g. Javascrypt (http://www.fourmilab.ch/javascrypt/) and temporary localstorage/cookie. Do not store the password at all, not even in localstorage. You can use a key derivation function to get a key from the password. With a salt and a reasonable number of iterations this could be secure enough. Update: See this securely store user password locally in a jquery mobile app for another good answer

Security.Authentication.AuthenticationException: The remote certificate is invalid according to the validation procedure
The problem is that you haven't configured a valid SSL certificate. Since valid SSL certificate cost money, for development purposes, I guess you used an auto-signed certificate. You could ignore those error by settings the ServerCertificateValidationCallback static property in your Application_Start: System.Net.ServicePointManager.ServerCertificateValidationCallback += (s, cert, chain, sslPolicyErrors) => true; NOTE: Avoid doing this in production. When you deploy on LIVE make sure you are using a valid SSL certificate.

Storing encrypted username/password for authentication on remote website without OAuth

Enabling OAuth 2.0 authentication for REST services using WSO2 Identity Server as Authorization server
Just trying to do the same exact thing. The only resource i've found so far that points in the right direction is this article. Seems that you need to use wso2esb in front of your REST API to intercept all incoming calls. The ESB needs to be configured with a message handler responsible for authorizing and authenticating each request with the IS. Once the request is autenticated its passed on to the API. If you advance on this issue please leave your findings!

REST Authentication: put key in custom header or Authorization header?
Given your requirements, its sounds like a custom header is the way to go here. I believe your concern regarding it being a poor design choice is irrelevant here because there is no standardized way of passing an API key. API keys mean different things to different applications. To some, its a user id; to others, its a password; and to others still it's simply means of throttling where no explicit authentication is even required. As far as compatibility goes, most tools, allow some flexibility regarding working with API so as long is you don't do anything crazy I think you'll be fine. Whatever you do, just make sure that with any standards you do choose to implement that you implement them fully (OAuth vs "OAuth like") and provide documentation.

Should HTTP Basic Authentication be used for client or user API authentication?
By authenticate the client you probably mean the usage of API Key, this mechanism is used to track the concrete application/client. The second thing is that it gives you the possibility to disable the application by disabling the key, for example when client's author removes his account from the service. If you want to make your API public then it is a good idea. But you need to remember that it gives you no real protection, everybody can download the client and extract that key.
