@arteteco OAUTH already makes that possible. Just need the activity pub services to start supporting it (some do, not many)
Oauth can work even between different servers? I used it once but the programs were on the same machine
@arteteco depends what you mean. It means that you can sign on with one click on any server which uses the OAuth provider you are registered with.
Usually when you see things like "sign on with your facebook account" that is OAuth
Ohh... marvellous. And how is the integration with the fediverse going?
@arteteco The only OAuth capable software in the fediverse that I know of is nextcloud with a plugin. But it isnt an OAuth provider, just a consumer. So in practice it just lets you sign on with your google or facebook account.
Isn't what OpenID tried to do? (you set your Auth server at registering, and he's the trustful authority)
I also like how cryptocommodities (like Ethereum) handle this issue: you're identified via your couple of public/private keys. It's very impressive to see it in action on DApps.
(is there a working group on this somewhere?)
Thanks, do you know if and where the issue is being worked on?

We federate with all servers: we don't block any servers.
