WebID is an open standard for identity and password-less login on the Web. WebID is designed to help alleviate the difficulty that remembering different logins, passwords and settings for websites has created. It is also designed to provide a universal and extensible mechanism to express public and private information about identity online.
This project includes the features described below.
This module can provide Drupal users a WebID, that is a URI at which information about the user is available (name, email, etc.) as well as a browser certificate which can be used to authenticate on any WebID enabled site.
This module lets people sign on Drupal using their WebID. If they don't have an existing account, a new account can be created for them automatically. If they already have an account associated with their WebID, they will be logged in without having to enter any password.
