Subject [jira] Commented: (JSPWIKI-94) OpenID support
Date Tue, 24 Feb 2009 16:14:02 GMT


Tilman Bender commented on JSPWIKI-94:


I am not sure if I got you right. What do you mean by the "lack of assurance over authentication"?
Somebody setting up a rogue OP to create fake profiles for other people?
Could you please elaborate on the specific scenario you have in mind.
Couldn't the scenario look like this:

1. the wiki is non public
2. If a user with a new OpenID wants to register, they can do so (probably using sreg, if
supported by their OP).
3. If the OP is on the whitelist, all is fine. If not so, registration needs to be confirmed
by the wiki admin.

I know this isn't really the "everybody can edit" philosophy of a wiki, but as we are talking
about the need of authentication here, this should
not be an issue anyway.

enough to make it work ;-).  But it's a good idea to keep here so that we don't forget about
