I want to authenticate my mobile phone apps to my online Rails apps.
What would be the best approach to do this? Can anybody give
suggestion both on how I should do it in the mobile app and in the
I've got a similar situation with 2 apps, both Rails apps, where the
one making the request uses the Ruby Net::HTTP library to send its
requests, authenticating using BasicAuth inside SSL. The requests are
made to a RESTful interface so the receiving Rails app doesn't
distinguish, except in terms of the format of the response, between
getting the request from a browser or an app.
