OAuth tokenization and Rapid prototyping with Citi

Learn about our Developer Hub and how to gain access to our sandbox so you can experiment with the same APIs that we’ve released to partners in our production environment. We’ll also give a live code demo and build a simple and fun financial service app together to help inspire your own creative ideas: our code, your magic.

What You’ll Learn

  • OAuth tokenization is the best way to protect client credentials. This standard web practice is relatively new to finance but is increasingly crucial to developing financial service apps.
  • App development for finance is about locating platforms and services at the center of community activities—providing value without a high threshold for entry.
  • Citi is connecting the financial industry to the larger global API economy.
