How to authenticate Canvas users from third party for using APIs

I want to authenticate Canvas user from Mobile app login page.

 

Below is the use case:

 

1. User enters his/her Canvas credentials.

2. A request is sent to Canvas to authenticate user.

3. Canvas returns response which validates whether user is a valid user or not.

 

Is there any API for doing this? or any workaround for the same.

 

Looking forward for help.
