XEP-0070 allows a client to verify HTTP Requests via XMPP. It can be used in 2 factor authentication or as a replacement of passwords.

See:
https://xmpp.org/extensions/xep-0070.html
https://blog.agayon.be/xmpp_auth_django.html

There are some implementations on the server side:

If the XEP-0070 is not supported, there is a fall back method (just plain text) so the client doesn't necessarily has to have support for this. Unfortunately, this method is usable with Converse.js.

In order to test several clients support, I made a small website:

https://demo.agayon.be/

I aim to make a website for non-tech people based on this feature.

Unfortunately, it is not really convenient with Converse.js t the moment.

  • It is not possible to reply to the component (there is no input box)
  • It is not possible to add the component to roster (I don't know if it would respect the protocol)

As a result, people not familiarized with XMPP cannot use the functionality with Converse.js.
