The purpose of this sample project is to demonstrate how you can use Auth0 to add an ID4me-compliant identity provider as an option to your end-users to sign up and log in to your web application.
ID4me is an open, global, federated standard to manage online identities. It allows the user to establish their identity using their own domain name and then use that identity to log in and sign up at websites that support ID4me.
ID4me provides full data sharing control. ID4me users are not only free to choose their identity provider, they can change their provider at any time. This is also what differentiates ID4me from other commonly known social identity providers in the field.
The user can also use single-sign-on across different services with just one ID, which means they don't have to remember multiple passwords for different websites.
The initiative’s mission is to provide users with open and internationally available identity services that adhere to security and data protection standards, that foster user choice, and that avoid identity lock-ins.
ID4me is an open group of internet service providers, software developers, and other entities that care about the future of the internet and want to defend its distributed and federated architecture when it comes to digital identities.
