Feature Description


The Account Manager project aims to produce:

   * A protocol definition that sites can use to define their account-and-session management features in a format a web browser can understand. (The latest draft of the specification is here). 
   * An implementation of this protocol as a Firefox addon. 

The goal is to help users manage the process of "connecting" to a site, in a way that allows us to use secure browser chrome, and supports multiple authentication mechanisms.

The account manager is an evolution of the Firefox password manager and the Weave identity components (OpenID + auto-login). It will help users manage logins and profile information for each site, and it will automate currently manual tasks such as signing up for sites, generating passwords, etc. The first prototype will have support for "traditional" login methods (e.g., form + cookie), but it will also have some support for OpenID/federated logins.

Creating a new identity framework is a non-goal of this project, although some new file formats and protocols are in scope (see below for details).
