What’s the state of the art of identity in the fediverse? This blog is a decent problem statement.

Im not sire what state of the art happens to be, but keyoxide is my personal favorite approach. There is of course keybase as well.

@freemo Thanks. I've used keybase, but will investigate keyoxide for comparison.

@underlap
Keyoxide achieves the same result as keybase but is open and distributed. You store your proofs in your pgp key as metadata itself and upload it to a keyserver. So anyone with a copy of your public key, which they can always fetch from a keyserver, can verify your identity. Keyoxide is mostly just a gui tool/webapp to make it easy to display and verify someones proofs.
