OAuth is an open standard for access delegation, commonly used as a way for Internet users to grant websites or applications access to their information on other websites but without giving them the passwords. This mechanism is used by companies such as Amazon,  Google,  Facebook,  Microsoft and Twitter to permit the users to share information about their accounts with third party applications or websites. 

Sheet Director supports both OAuth1 and OAuth2

Key Authentication

Key authentication is used to solve the problem of authenticating the keys of the person (say "person B") to whom some other person ("person A") is talking to or trying to talk to. In other words, it is the process of assuring that the key of "person A" held by "person B" does in fact belong to "person A" and vice versa.

This is usually done after the keys have been shared among the two sides over some secure channel, although some of the algorithms share the keys at the time of authentication also.
