microID - am I missing something?


2006-10-25

MicroID sounds like a good plan. It's a nice and quite simple way to 'sign' content you creat with a verifiable ownership. Cool. The basic idea is that only he who can edit the content can actually add the required hash of MicroID = sha1_hex( sha1_hex( "mailto:user@email.com" ) + sha1_hex( "http://website.com" ) ); to the content. Ok. That's for positive verification. But who is to stop someone elde to use my signature for their content? Why would someone want to do that? Well go ask email spammers why they use my email adress to send you their crap, will you?
