[Openid-specs-ab] [OAUTH-WG] Simple Web Discovery

So not sure that this would be handled by the SWD itself but as pointed out in the SWD specification is that the SWD may be accompanied by an authorization header and this is where I would expect that to happen

In the case where the user logs in to a RP with a PPID type identifier.  

How could the person then allow the RP to discover their service endpoints.
Also conversely would publishing the endpoint provide a way for the RP to correlate the user without permission.

One common practice for openID PPID is that the IdP generates the PPID via AES128(actual ID + RP or sector identifier).

In that case the RP could do an oauth flow to the IdP discovery endpoint to get permission to see the user endpoints.
The IdP could decrypt the opaque identifier to determine the actual subject.

That would protect the non correlation unless the user decides to permit discovery.

The model if not the details seem similar to some work that is being submitted to the ITU-T as I understand it.

>> Having a simple discovery method for services and resources is key to enabling many Internet scenarios that require interactions among parties that do not have pre-established relationships.  For instance, if Joe, with e-mail address joe at example.com, wants to share his calendar with Mary, then Mary's calendar service, in the general case, will need to discover the location of Joe's calendar service.  For example, Mary's calendar service might discover that Joe's calendar service is located at http://calendars.proseware.com/calendar/joseph by doing discovery for a service named urn:adatum.com:calendar  at example.com for the account joe.

SWD is simple to understand and implement, enables different permissions to be applied to discovery of different services, and is JSON-based.  I look forward to discussing this with many of you next week at IIW<http://www.internetidentityworkshop.com/iiwxi-11-in-mountain-view/>.
