What would you like to do?
Solid Auth

What I think would be helpful would be a table of auth mechanisms, something like:

This table should be used as a rough guide, not as black and white

Name URI used Verification Required Implemented
Cookie implied Shared Secret Y Y
WebID RSA WebID Web Crypto API N Y
HTTP Signatures Public Key Web Crypto API N N
SPOT* Document? Pod N N

Note: there is still an open issue on the spot proposal page

Not yet in the table

  • Dialback (need to write up in solid context)
  • Indieauth (similar to spot) needs to be modified and/or written up in solid context?
  • Solid Cookies (I would need to write up the proposal)
  • OAuth based auth (needs fleshing out)
