The xdi2-client component contains client functionality for XDI discovery. Given an identifier such as a cloud name, or discovery key, useful information such a cloud number, a public key, or additional services, can be discovered.

The first (required) step is to send an XDI discovery request to a discovery service.

The second (optional) step is to send an XDI discovery request to the XDI authority associated with the identifier.
