Hey,

A third party web application wants to embed some of my secure content in its page.

Each web application has its own user authentication and different user bases.

What is the best and most seamless way to let Web App 1 embed my page without promptings its users?

Thank you

Use an API key system, such as OAuth.  Every application wanted to pull from your site gets a key, and that key determines what access they have.
