One of the newest features in Bungee Connect is the ability to leverage existing authentication services instead of developing your own authentication. This is advantageous both in the terms of development time and security. By using DWA, developers make their applications easier to use, since their target audience won’t have to create yet another set of credentials for a web application. Currently, Delegated Web Authentication is available for Facebook, Google, and Windows Live.
To incorporate DWA into your application, you will probably want to start by look at the How To page that provides an explanation on how to incorporate DWA for each of the supported authentication services. You may also find it useful to view the video where I interview the developer, Wynn Wilkes, who engineered this feature. In the video, Wynn takes us step-by-step through the process of implementing the Google DWA driver.
