From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

IndieAuth is an open standard decentralized authentication protocol that uses OAuth 2.0 and enables services to verify the identity of a user represented by a URL, as well as to obtain an access token, that can be used to access resources under the control of the user.[1]

IndieAuth is developed in the IndieWeb community and was published as a W3C Note.[1] It was published as a W3C Note by the Social Web Working Group due to lacking the time needed to formally progress it to a W3C recommendation, despite having several interoperable implementations.[2]
