Designed For People, Not Machines
This approach for authentication lets you portably move from relying on a company to provide your data and identity to you defining it on your own terms; exposing the bits of data that you choose to provide.
Sites that support IndieAuth as a means of logging in never need to know how you signed in and you never need to expose more information than you have to when authenticating yourself.
Plug and Play
It's a fast way for application developers to get up and running with supporting IndieWeb-capable identities. Your site becomes your source of truth and identity on the Web.
Easy to Remember
No more stressing over what password, username or e-mail you've used for a particular site — Fortress abstracts that away for developers and lets the user define how they'll identity themselves.
