OpenID Inline Authentication Extension 1.0 Draft 1

The Inline Authentication Extension attempts to solve the problem of legacy
and interactive applications (Telnet/SSH) that are unable to launch a client
Web Browser to perform an authentication request.

This is done through the use of "verification keys", which are provided
either as needed by the OpenID Provider, or provided on a rotating basis
from a hardware crypto device, or a key generating token (SecurID).

As always, your comments are appreciated!

Thank you,

John Ehn
