Initiative for Open Authentication

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia


The name OATH is an acronym from the phrase "open authentication", and is pronounced as the English word "oath".[1]

OATH is not related to OAuth, an open standard for authorization, however, most logging systems employ a mixture of both.
