Comparison between various proposals for Web ID.
Several proposals existing starting from Tim Berners-Lee in 2020-03-05 to rescent version from the browser folk and the decerntalized ID folk, all in the W3.
- The first proposal from Sambra, Story and Berners-Lee sought to deal with a distributed Social Web.
- A WebID is an HTTP URI which refers to an Agent (Person, Organization, Group, Device, etc.). A description of the WebID can be found in the Profile Document.
- A WebID Profile Document is a Web resource that MUST be available as text/turtle [turtle], but MAY be available in other RDF formats.
- WebIDs can be used to build a Web of trust using vocabularies such as FOAF [FOAF] by allowing people to link together their profiles in a public or protected manner.
- URI fragments (#me) support sub sets or offshoots of the profile doc which is available at the base URI.
