What do OpenID, the Higgins Project, i-names, and XDI (XRI Data Interchange)
all have in common? They all use the XRI 2.0 digital identifier
specifications and XRDS discovery format from the OASIS XRI (Extensible
Resource Identifier) Technical Committee. Come to this one-hour webinar and
* Why distributed directories, digital identity frameworks, ontologies,
reputation systems, and other emerging Web technologies need abstract
* How XRI syntax combines the best features of URNs (Uniform Resource Names)
and HFNs (Human-Friendly Names).
* How XRIs are backwards-compatible with URIs (Uniform Resource Identifiers)
and IRIs (Internationalized Resource Identifiers).
* How XRDS documents are rapidly becoming the defacto service discovery
format for user-centric identity and data portability.
* The problems XRI and XRDS solved for OpenID Authentication 2.0.
* There will be a question and answer period following the presentation.
