I have a web service that transforms JSON to JSON, using a RESTful service

Which authentication would be a normative choice for such a scenario

BA, OAuth, SAML, Kerberos ?

    Accepted Solution

    For a plain json request normally you just have a key of some kind that authenticates the user.
    Since this normally happens behind the scenes there is normally no need for any kind of special authorisation.
