Implementing homebrew public key crypto is actually rather difficult, and most developers don't even get symmetric key crypto right which is far less complex. I see this almost every day, even from experienced developers who should know better. Why not just use OAuth straight away? Not that I'm a very big fan of it, but it's better than building something from scratch and it's widely used.
