I have created a draft of a new specification that I think will help to fill a gap in OpenID functionality.
What appears to be a newer productivity feature of many websites is the ability to import and utilize information from other sites. For instance, Basecamp provides an API that allows other systems to access user data. This is a great feature, but it currently cannot be done with OpenID, due to the dependence on end-user interaction during the authentication process. The Trusted Authentication Extension provides for the ability for an OpenID Consumer to log in to another OpenID Consumer without user interaction. The end user will be able to create a trusted connection between two OpenID enabled sites, which will allow a client site to access a destination site using the end user's Identity. Please provide your comments and feedback, as they are most appreciated. http://extremeswank.com/openid_trusted_auth.html Thank you, John Ehn [EMAIL PROTECTED]
