  14. 14. About WebID• Leverages existing Web infrastructure – X.509 certificates and TLS• A mirrored claims approach to authentication – externalizing LDAP, a human/app ‘API key’• for more info, see – http://webid.info/ • http://www.w3.org/2005/Incubator/webid/spec/ • http://www.w3.org/2005/Incubator/webid/wiki • http://www.w3.org/2005/Incubator/webid/wiki/Implementatio ns
  15. 15. Where we’re going with WebID • see (platform) challenge 4 – enabling very flexible and fine-grained access control • leads to data centric authorization – PCAST Health IT Report • data element access service’ – “secure the data, not just the devices” • US Fed CIO Steven VanRoekel
