To Authenticate LinkedIn with Twitter OAuth, book a demo with DreamFactory. DreamFactory is an open source API gateway that can handle all of your customized integrations.
What is DreamFactory?
DreamFactory is the premier API lifecycle management platform.
It eliminates duplication of effort in code development, documentation, and testing by allowing you to model your application easily and create fully-documented REST API.
This enables agile application developers to build, deploy and maintain new applications faster.
DreamFactory's capabilities go well beyond integrating APIs with a wide range of authentication providers. Additional security-related features include:
- Automated API key management
- Granular role-based access controls, allowing you to restrict APIs to specific endpoints and even limit access by HTTP method
- Request volume limiting on a per-service, per-user, and even a per-endpoint basis
- The ability to extend endpoints using custom scripting, allowing for data masking, input validation, geofencing, and much more
What is LinkedIn?
LinkedIn serves as a social media website designed for professionals to find and present themselves to others in a business network.
It is free, and different from other social networks as users specify their positions, ranging from intern to CEO or marketing director; and look at others' profiles to find common-ground business opportunities.
LinkedIn provides developers the ability to integrate their app with LinkedIn with LinkedIn's developer API.
What is Twitter OAuth?
Twitter's three-legged OAuth flow allows your application to obtain an access token and access token secret by redirecting a user to Twitter and having them authorize your application. This flow is almost identical to the flow described in implementing Log in with Twitter, except that it uses a full URL to pass state through the redirect URI so that you can get back a valid set of credentials.
