[foaf-dev] Privacy in FOAF

The protocols for privacy in foaf don't require much standard work, as
they build on standard work done elsewhere.
So for example to use openid and foaf as described here
you would just need to
- develop a vocabulary to point to an openid authentication point
- develop a server that published that information
- develop a client that knew how to use it
The rest is specified by openid I think.
For foaf+ssl described here,
you need even less as it builds on the well known https.
You can just use rdfs:seeAlso to point to the https protected
resource. Then you need a client and a server.
Ah yes, you may need an rdf vocabulary for Romeo's foaf file
describing his public key.
I am writing a client that can do this at https://sommer.dev.java.net/
There is also some code we started for the server side. It is an open
source project, and
I am always happy to accept contributions. The barriers to
participation there are very low.
It may be good to get the Tabulator folks involved too. At the moment
I think we are at an exploration
phase. Perhaps this would require its special mailing list?
