From OAuth to IndieAuth: Own Your Online Identity

A session at Open Source Bridge 2012

Tuesday 26th June, 2012

4:45pm to 5:30pm (PST)

IndieAuth is a way to use your own domain to sign in to websites, without writing any OAuth code! By delegating to one or more OAuth providers, and by linking your website to those providers, you can start to sign in as yourdomain.com!

This talk will give a detailed explanation of IndieAuth, how it leverages existing OAuth implementations, and how you can use it on your own websites.

From the user's perspective, it allows you to log in as yourdomain.com. From the website's perspective, it prevents you from needing to implement OAuth code for each identity provider you want to support, and it allows you to identify users outside the social silos of Twitter and Facebook.
