What is this: ?

@musicmatze online identity using decentralized technology.

@yarmo @musicmatze keyoxide is awesome, I haven't managed to prove my xmpp yet though

@rob @yarmo What is the value of it, though?

@musicmatze @rob @yarmo does any system reference or use keyoxide?

@musicmatze @yarmo like keybase except decentralized and you don't your your private key to some server

@travisfw @musicmatze @yarmo It's independent proof of identity

@rob @yarmo @musicmatze how is independent proof of identity being used in other systems?

How so? Do they visit me at home to verify I am who I claim to be?
@yarmo @travisfw

@musicmatze @yarmo @travisfw no 🤓

You add proofs to your own PGP key and publish it, these proofs correlate to something you've added to an account you control. I.e.

The web app, which is also self hostable, just looks up your key and verifies the proofs are signed by your hey and exist on the related account as seen here

@musicmatze @travisfw @yarmo see for further details and current proof guides

@travisfw @yarmo @musicmatze I don't know if it is, but that's the point? It's a way for an individual to say hey, these are all my accounts and I'm linking them with my public key
