2013/Auth Jam Session
Indie Auth Jam
- Any problems with IndieAuth and your site?
- Rob Lord: having problems with IndieAuth as of 2013-06-22 - couldn't log into IndieWebCamp. Possible cause: rel="me nofollow" or rel="nofollow me" found in twitter.com/r0bl0rd and github.com/r0bl0rd Fixed. HTTP vs HTTPS err.
- IndieAuth recent changes:
- enforced http / https consistency
- if your auth provider redirects to an https profile URL, you MUST directly link to the https version
IndieAuth + Persona
- add: rel="me" href="mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org"
- Can we extend IndieAuth for people who don't have a domain
- Use Webfinger (optional) to detect when people are delegating authority accidentally to wrong email
- Perhaps restrict it to rel="me" href="mailto:email@example.com" on yourdomain.com
- On second thought, this is a bad idea... too heavy burden for security to individuals
IndieAuth + Persona + WebFinger
- rel-me to an email
- email is authenticated with Persona with verification with requiredEmail
- final check is WebFinger discovery on the email address to make sure it links back to the original home page
IndieAuth + SMS
- IndieAuth server sends a one-time txt to your phone number that you have to enter into the IndieAuth web form flos
- SMS uri scheme defined in RFC 5724: http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc5724.txt
- supported on Apple Mobile Safari to launch Messages app:
- TEL URI scheme defined in http://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc3966
Example: Adding something like this to your site should enable SMS authentication on IndiAuth.
<a rel="me" href="sms:+15035555555">(503) 555-5555</a>
