Now a days, online identity and security has become major topic of discussion and concern
There is a website like yodlee which does content management and data aggregation storing
identity of the users on their machines. How secure is our identity knowing the network
loopholes , vast hacker community and user skeptisism of giving away their information.
To solve this problem, I have an idea. I call it xJesktop.
xJsesktop is a desktop application which would sit on user desktop machines
(linux, windows, etc.,) It comprises of a user friendly GUI through which websites
connected to users can be configured one time or as and when users requires.
xJsektop, when launched would
1.Read the configuration database/file.
2.Connect to various websites.
3.Authenticate using userid and password on behalf of the user.
4.Provide a user friendly view of all the relevant information from various websites.
This way, all the identity information is stored on induvidual computer and not on some
remote alien server.
This is a potential open source project. I am not aware of something of this kind,
if there are, then let me know the links.
