No, You Lock It Up!

Posted by Eric Bidelman & Kunal Shah, Google Data APIs Team

The latest realease of the Google Data Python client library (v1.2.3) includes the usual updates and bug fixes, but also adds two important features, OAuth and secure AuthSub. Both authorization mechanisms allow developers to make their web applications more secure by requiring API requests be digitally signed. Check out the sample applications to get started:

Secure AuthSub example using the Google Health Data API

OAuth example using the Google Documents List Data API

You can download the latest client from the client's project page. As always, if you're interested in contributing, the door is always open. Drop by the contributors discussion group and jump right in.
