I am planing to use WCF Web API and jquery for my new project. I want to use jquery to call my wcf web api and then bind it to the html controls.

My main concern is the security, how we can secure the application that is calling wcf web api or wcf from jquery or javascript.

Thanks for reply. I think OAuth is the option I may be like to go with.


Before learning I just want to know how secure this OAuth is if we call the web pages using jquery.


Is there are other methods I may be look into, because wcf and web api works great with jquery to get data, but the bottle neck is security. 

There are some suggestions to put ajax kind of third security layer between jquery and wcf.



Thanks very much , i just want to kind the best way to combining wcf web api and jquery securily.
