Google Apps Supports OAuth

Google Apps recently began supporting OAuth authorization when connecting to the Google Apps API.

OAuth will make integration with the Google Apps platform much more secure by not requiring administrators to share their username and password with third party applications.

The advantages to using OAuth are: The Google Apps API services that support OAuth are: OAuth for authentication is more accepted by developers, and it makes many IT administrators much more comfortable with allowing third party integration with their Google Apps Premier, Education and Government editions.
