Draft-002 is a specification of the YADIS Protocol.

YADIS is a service discovery system allowing identity sytem relying parties (aka identity consumers or membersites) to determine automatically, without end-user intervention, the most appropriate identity protocol to use to authenticate or obtain information about a proffered identifier.

There are five steps to specify a protocol to for service discovery:

  • Discuss the alternatives.
  • Choose one of the alternatives.

The alternatives were discussed at a meeting in San Francisco. The meeting was successful in achieving consensus on details of the YADIS Protocol. See the meeting notes.

Drafting of the YADIS 1.0 Specification is well underway. See the links. Please comment on the corresponding Discussion pages.
