Mozilla arbeitet an einem neuen „Identity in the Browser„-Projekt namens BrowserID:

For users, BrowserID provides a safer and easier way to sign in.

For developers, BrowserID offers a world class sign-in experience with only a couple lines of code.

For identity providers, BrowserID lets you give your users an identity they can use everywhere.

Das W3C startet einen Identity in the Browser Workshop:

As the Web becomes increasingly a focal point for economic and social activity, there is an urgent need for trustworthy, widely-applicable digital identity management. This includes the need for authentication and authorization to work across multiple web-sites, enterprises, devices, and browsers in a uniform and easy-to-use manner.

Leider scheint Chris Messina nicht dabei zu sein… mir hat seine damalige Konzeptstudie sehr gut gefallen!
