OAuth for the Open Web

A little about the challenges of using #OAuth2 in a distributed setting for WordPress, GitLab, Mastodon, and more. Spoiler: it's not all bad news. Let's make this happen!

I'm wondering why can't the openID stuff be ssh keys.

+ this is my ssh key for the banking website... I don't want to share this identity with anyone else
+ this is my ssh key for webmail
+ this is my ssh key that I use for communication.... etc. and so on.
@klaatu for us Linux people it fits like a glove... and could be used as a method to make the internet easier for noons (grandparents)
@klaatu
And the ssh config file would REALLY simplify what key you wanted to use with what site.

But I'm sure there is a reason that this is not used for identity verification.

Probably something like, we couldn't make it work for websites.
