Oauth - Resource Server

Oauth

About

A resource server is one of the 4 roles of Oauth. It hosts the protected resources, capable of accepting and responding to protected resource requests using access tokens.

Example

An end-user (resource owner) can grant a printing service (client) access to her protected photos (the protected resources) stored at a photo-sharing service (the resource server).

Implementation

The interaction between the authorization server and resource server is beyond the scope of the oauth specification.
