Welcome to the WebID Community Group!
The WebID Group has been working hard over the years on developing a number of specifications, detailing a method to enable distributed decentralised identity, decentralised secure authentication, enabling among other things decentralised access control.
Joining should be a very easy three step process:
- Get a W3C account
- join the group and sign the light Intellectual Property agreement
- Wait for the response and join the discussion
Please send me feedback if I got that wrong
When you join you will be added to the public-webid one, and you will be able to edit the wiki, and more…
Why is there another identity related group at http://www.w3.org/community/w3id/ besides http://www.w3.org/community/webid/ ?
Not sure: Community Groups are easy to form. You should ask them.
This group is the continuation of an Incubator Group. It is developing usable technical solutions to the identity and privacy issues on the web.
Other groups of interest are:
– Privacy Interest Group
– Public Identity group
– Public Web Crypto API group.
