This specification describes how to use bearer tokens in HTTP
requests to access OAuth 2.0 protected resources.  Any party in
possession of a bearer token (a "bearer") can use it to get access to
the associated resources (without demonstrating possession of a
cryptographic key).  To prevent misuse, bearer tokens need to be
protected from disclosure in storage and in transport.
