a startup idea shared by mcintyre321 on 01/25/2012
When using online sites, you may want someone to believe that you are a real person (and not a scammer, spammer or otherwise not as described) . Also
So the idea is to create a Open ID provider which can be used as an authentication system by websites which, rather than just returning your identity to the authenticating site, will instead return an anonymised identity, with a generated email address (e.g. email@example.com), thus protecting the user.
Further to this, the provider would allow the user to verify facts about themselves by connecting to facebook, providing credit card details. This can be then used to produce a trustworthiness factor which sites using the provider can access (still anonymously though).
This would help cut down online fraud, spamming and have uses for sites like airbnb and ebay etc.
