proxy authorization with oauth
January 20, 2012 8:14 AM   Subscribe

When implementing OAuth2, is it possible to pass authorization to a second client, similar to proxy authentication in CAS?

The use case is that a user is authenticated with a client web site, which has been granted authorization to access that user's account. As a part of the user interface on that site is a java applet. How do I allow the java applet to make web service requests to the content provider with the authorization the user has already granted? Do I need to have the user authorize it separately? Can I pass a refresh token to the applet?

This is a simplified case, but assume that the applet must communicate directly with the content server.
