Starting with version 7.0, IBM MobileFirst Platform Foundation supports a new security model based on the OAuth standard. A new client API is provided to conform to this new security model.

To support backward compatibility, the Classic (pre-v7.0) MobileFirst security model is still in use in the flows that are based on the existing MobileFirst APIs.

MobileFirst v7.0 provides seamless integration between the two security models. The platform allows you to mix classic and new APIs in the same application, while keeping a consistent security context on the server-side.
