Internet Identity for Web 2.0

We know web 2.0 is not going away anytime soon. Is it possible to make Internet Identity usable with Web 2.0?

For example - like login with Facebook - Login with internet identity?


Yes! The Internet Identity was explicitly designed to allow that, and one just has to implement the client auth protocol. For that, the existing Javascript libraries probably only need mild adjustments, and a little bit of signature checking code on the (conventional) server.

Are you just asking out of curiosity, or do you have concrete plans? Iā€™m happy to advise.


Hey thanks for your answer. This was just out of curiosity and an idea - seems to me like a very good use case for the Internet Identity.

Can bring more people from the web2 world to the IC. Like a billboard about IC everywhere.
