    Guest:

    Just a note that we have a new forum to contain discussions relating to the Wordpress plug-in which Daniel Persson originated and has been making great progress on. You'll find it under "Server-Side Solutions."

    Play Store description - call for suggestions

    Google's best-practices for Play Store listings are not as simple as possible. Apples rules are even tougher. My guess is we can't know where users will read about SQRL the first time, and I think we better use every channel possible for evangelising and explaining SQRL. I also think Steve's...

    Another variant, possibly psychologically better:

    Play Store description - call for suggestions

    Good text alternative. Interating one step more on it: Edited for brevity, to avoid negative statements, removed programmer-targeted info about openness (programmers will by themselves find and read the SQRL website or watch a video, no content push needed). And made sure to have a call to...

    Play Store description - call for suggestions

    Ok, challenge accepted :) I'll try to make the text a little bit shorter and sweeter. To clarify, this is a rewrite that started from the SQRL Android play store description (copied from there) and rewritten a few times to get at the core feature, talk about end-user utility rather than...

    Play Store description - call for suggestions

    Gristle, what do you think is the purpose of the description in the Play Store? I think the correct approach and best practice is that the store descriptions adjust as well as possible to be useful and attractive to the people who encounter SQRL for their first time in the stores. That's my...

    Play Store description - call for suggestions

    IMHO, paragraph (C) is too technical to be of any use in an app description. It goes in some "How does this all work technically?" below the fold texts. Paragraph D and E talks about SQRL allowing websites to let the user remain anonymous or not. This is 99% uo to the websites, maybe 1% up to...

    Good point, it should be considered. Taking a quick read, some of it can be reused as is, some would need editing. From the linked page, I picked this segment for a start: Update: added letters to mark paragraphs

    Just a FYI - I adjusted the text blocks above to use QUOTE and make things more clear.

    Play Store description - call for suggestions

    The text was now accepted by the executive type person as understandable. Only question was what is 2nd factor. TIL there exists corporate entities who do not require 2nd factor for sign in. But they do require changing passwords every XX days... oh well.

    Play Store description - call for suggestions

    Hi, is anyone up for bouncing ideas for making some text suggestions for the app's play store description? The idea is to make it easier to understand and want to use the app for someine who's not yet enlightened like us here. So please try texts out on the apps future target users. Current...

    What would an adoption roadmap look like?

    This is the Trojan we need. Email won't go away, but 2nd factor, and later, passwords too, will be deprecated by sqrl or similar tech. How about getting security web forums to be first out? Then their blogs. Podcasts. Then tech blogs and casts. Software Engineering daily cast. Some p2p...

    What if... a site's URL changes (take 2)

    Good thinking Vela. Often proofs (commitments) are built as preimages. Are we in elliptic key land with SQRL? That might offer some interesting paths to prove an old identity, without giving away anything in case the new site isn't having all the old site's data.

    Off topic How will SQRL handle lawful access?

    My $0.05 is that (eventually) Apple and someo site ending in .nz or .ch will offer storage that is authenticated with one Alt ID and encrypted with another Alt Id, fully preventing lawful access in any other way than by compelling the data creator with rubberhose. Or a sting, or similar. Owning...

    Rekeying -- why do sites completely forget old identity?

    Doing a secondary hashing of any failed sqrl login attempt could be a timing leak, but I guess it's no issue - you either log in, or wait for the hashing + check in secondary db. Preventing an insider or admin from reinstating an old sqrl id without having to dig it out from backups, or somply...
