Hmm. I've 'ummed and 'awed for the last 30 minutes on this, and am starting
to like it: the Clerezza bit. I assume it  comes with the sparql engine, so
I don't have to work with a windows semweb library that's going nowhere

 

The key thing that webid is going to have to do, rather than simply do what
50 other login schemes do, is REALLY showcase what the semweb integration
brings to the table, so that webid accelerates value of authentication way
beyond a bit of client/server login to the guard over an resource server.

 

Providing shell-login to an interpreter that is specifically trying to
add-value seems like an interesting play. It seems to be almost a php for
the semweb, in which any stored graph becomes a restful endpoint - itself
capable of interacting with a webid client (i.e. browser).

I opened ISSUE-31  for that.

 

I would be interested to implement that in Clerezza. Clerezza has an SSH
shell, and it would be really nice if

one could connect to the shell using SSH using the same key the admin
created from his web browser.

 

So the use case is appealing.
