Authenticating salesforce user with third party app


I have created a button for lead/contact  which on click redirects to my webapp (other than salesforce). I need to authenticate the salesforce user  in my webapp. 

Could anyone please tell me how to authenticate sf user. Is there any way to generate some token?
