Whilst browsing through yesterday’s Apache HTTPd Modules-Dev mailing list emails, I came across an email from the Enigformcreator”.

This is the first time I’ve come across this project, and actually looked into it. Naturally anything anyone considers writing an Apache Module for must be interesting! I won’t bother going into depth explaining what it is, or why it’s a good thing, but something that does interest me is integrating it into existing applications as an alternative method of data authentication, with graceful degradation to standard logon methods when unavailable. Imagine a world where signing on / up to a web service involved typing your name and adding your public key. Of course there are a few issues with compatibility, expiration, lost keys, etc. but interesting nonetheless.

Yet another thing to chalk up onto the To Do list. Unless anyone feels like beating me to the punch on this one as well ;)
