User Experience (Usability)
|Aug 18, 2005 4:07 pm
|| Does anyone know of any standard or web initiative to create a persistent identity to be used for authentication on various websites. Something similar to the concept behind http://www.identitycommons.net or Microsoft's Passport (who trusts that for identify protection?)
Identity Commons has the potential of solving this problem... my reason for asking is that technically all the issues have not been addressed as of today, and they may not experience the level of adoption it would required to set a standard.
Wouldn't it be nice to...
- Know the person you are connecting to is who they say they are?
- Login to a website without typing or using cookies for login/passwords. Subject to trackers, keyloggers, spyware attack.
- Have security on your online and personal information.
I think this is an area of growing concern and is currently impacting the "comfort level" of many people as they use the web.
I am curious also what people think about how this effects usability.
