    I think the best option is probably number 4 - assuming I understand the use case correctly. You would basically create an OAuth 2.0 application in Box that allows a user to login on your website. They would click "grant access to box." You can see something similar to this if you go to the reference pages of our developer documentation and click "try this api." That is the type of flow you would do for number 4. In terms of scopes... it depends. If you only want to read the files - that's all you would need them to give. It would take some trail and error though to figure out what exactly will work - since I don't know all the details of the use case.
