AFAIK it works with *Mozilla Persona* (former: BrowserID), maybe Jan (in cc who have posted original announcement) can tell us his perspective on WebID in context of this project? Many people still haven't even hear about WebID :D

It looks like it may take a while before Nginx starts playing along with WebID at all, thread which I have linked to in WebID group,l where mk.fg have proposed a patch, has last comment 22 days ago :(
