Question about Salesforce and OAUTH (Open Authentication)

Our engineers want to build Open Authentication between our Salesforce Customer Portal and Cofluence (Open source wiki).

 

Does anyone have any experience with this and can it be done?

Yes - it is quite possible for Force.com to act as an OAuth client.   There is a sample package available here:

We're investigating adding native support in the future.   For the time being, the Apex approach shown above works quite well.
