Product Overview

Here you can find an overview of use.id and what you can do with it

use.id is both a WebID infrastructure provider and a platform for developers to easily build Solid- and WebID-compatible apps.

use.id: A WebID infrastructure provider

As a WebID infrastructure provider, use.id should be seen as a loosely coupled collection of components that are required by the W3C Solid standards:

  • use.id WebID Registry: Hosts the WebID profile document and resolves the use.id URIs to the right profile document.
  • use.id Store: The linked data platform on which the data is hosted combined with the authorisation server that contains the access controls for this data. This component is often called a 'pod server'.
  • use.id Identity Provider: An identity provider that currently lets users authenticate using one-time-passwords
  • use.id Authorisation Agent: An application that allows users to manage who can access what in such a way that it is interoperable between other applications and actors.
