    Giving temporary access to your ASP.NET Web API with Hawk

    One of the features supported by Hawk, an HTTP authentication protocol based on HMAC, is to provide read-only access to a Web API for a short period time.  That’s performed through a token called “bewit” that a Web API can provide to a client. That token is only valid for Http GET calls and it can be used for a limited period of time.
