Identity and Federation

  • Identity: OpenID
  • Identity: DNS (simple named identifier, fast, distributed cache, e.g. $ dig andy.tel naptr/loc/txt)
  • Identity: OAuth (Twitter, Facebook, Github)
  • Identity: XRI (i-names)
  • Identity: Webfinger, LRDD

Identity versus authentication:

  • Identity means: I am <name>.
  • Authentication means: prove it.

(U)ser = you use the technology with your personal domain to sign-in to other services

(C)onsume = your personal site accepts (relying party) the technology

  • U C technology
  • 9 1 OpenID
  • 6 1 BrowserID
  • 16 2 RelMeAuth/IndieAuth
  • 4 3 PubSub
  • most 3 Atom
  • most ? hAtom

Portability = can I take my identity to competing providers?

Federation? like email

  • RStatus (Ruby implementation of OStatus)
