This should not be named the same thing as the spec. This confuses people into thinking that the spec somehow relies on the indieauth.com service.

Feel free to bikeshed name ideas here. I think following the p3k naming convention would be fun but I'm open to other ideas as well.

IndieAuth As A Service, IAAAS, prounounced "YAAAASSSS!!!"

Since the service is user-facing, it deserves a more user-friendly name than IndieAuth or anything else plumbingy / jargony.

it's going to be hard to top IAAAS, but I suggested signet on IRC a while ago.... sort of feels like it has a steam punk vibe :-)

indieauth.rocks would indicate it is a tool, but maybe particularly a "validator"
but it is same fashion as existing micropub.rocks, websub.rocks, webmention.rocks, indietech.rocks ...
logthem.in as suggested by sknebel seems to be available - check
iauth.me seems to be available - check here [no https whois]

someauth, short for 'social media auth', but also 'this auth is sooo me'~

and/or: somelogin, same fashion, but more for people because 'auth' is jargon.

following the p3k scheme:

  • sigil
  • chancery

domain-wise these are tough ones though.

It's authentication, so call it "it me"

Did I mention I actually need two names for this? 😂

  • The service that users delegate their domain to (analogous to how choosing an OpenID provider used to be a thing, e.g. myopenid.com). This is used for authorization as well as authentication.
  • The service for developers that abstracts RelMeAuth, that allows users to sign in with their domain. Authentication only.

Currently considering:

  • glassmark[.net] for users
  • nymix[.io] for developers

So, the question is, would you sign up for a service called glassmark? e.g. would you switch from myopenid.com to glassmark[.net]?

If you're building an app, would you direct your users to nymix[.io] to sign in? This is also what people signing in to the indieweb.org wiki will be redirected to when signing in.

Now I'm going to let these sit for a while and come back later and see if I still think they're a good idea.

Something handling my identity has glass in its name .. bad idea.

@sebilasse sebilasse commented Jul 17, 2017

totally agreed to cweiske - misleading for german speakers, so

would you switch from myopenid.com to glassmark[.net] ?

No. Additionally it would leave me freaked out.
Orwells opaque glass

about (1) Like kevinmarks idea having me in it

Why must the service for developers also be renamed - whats wrong with IndieAuth ?

@aaronpk aaronpk commented Jul 19, 2017

Okay, did not realize that "glass" had such a strong connotation for Germans!

The service for developers is something that their users will see. I realized that they will also need to give instructions to their users to add the rel=me links to their websites, or point their users at the docs on this site: https://indieauth.com/setup

For this reason, the name of the developers' service actually needs to be even more user-friendly than the other one, because with IndieAuth the authorization server, you'll only see that site if you "sign up" for it by linking to the authorization endpoint.

The developers' service is also only used for login (authentication), not authorization. For this reason, I'm now leaning towards "indielogin" as the name. This means the docs on indielogin will never mention the word "auth" or "authorization".
