OAuth2 vs Stormpath: What are the differences?
Developers describe OAuth2 as "An open standard for access delegation". It is an authorization framework that enables a third-party application to obtain limited access to an HTTP service, either on behalf of a resource owner by orchestrating an approval interaction between the resource owner and the HTTP service, or by allowing the third-party application to obtain access on its own behalf. On the other hand, Stormpath is detailed as "User Management and Authentication for Developers". Stormpath is an authentication and user management service that helps development teams quickly and securely build web and mobile applications and services.
OAuth2 and Stormpath can be primarily classified as "User Management and Authentication" tools.
Ataccama, BookMeBus, and Mubasher.info are some of the popular companies that use OAuth2, whereas Stormpath is used by Stormpath, Forerunner Games, and Notify-e.
