An Introduction to Mobile Identity
Identity on a mobile device takes more forms than one might expect, and these aren't strictly equivalent to desktop or web identity counterparts even when the same back-end protocols are in use. We'll explore each of the different layers of mobile identity from the device and user layers through the app layer and examine how these identity concepts have evolved in modern mobile operating systems. We will also discuss a number of identity best practices on mobile devices and associated cross-platform mobile identity solutions like AppAuth which can standardize and improve the user identity experience for OAuth-based apps and services.
