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.

Features

This project includes the features described below.

WebID provider

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.

WebID authentication

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.
