What is answer2?

I remember covering answer1 and answer3 but for some reason am drawing a blank on answer2 even after reviewing the 3 sections.

I remember learning about client keys and altering the endpoint in section 2. Seems like the answer would be "token" but I'm not sure.

  1. Instead of username and passwords OAuth uses tokens to authenticate.
  2. OAuth uses the Authorization HTTP header to send OAuth credentials.
  3. Access levels in OAuth are called scopes.

The header is the key you write in the :headers Hash. Check out exercise 1.1 (Introducing OAuth2)

Likewise. It'd be nice to have confirmation on the answer though. Lol.
