In our previous post, having delved into the anatomy of Rollup ID scopes, it's time to explore some of the most common ones and understand their real-world applications. From email communications to blockchain interactions, Rollup ID scopes cater to a diverse range of needs.
In our previous post, we introduced the concept of authorization scopes and their significance in the digital identity landscape. Today, we'll delve deeper into the structure of a Rollup ID scope, exploring its components and understanding its role in ensuring secure and user-centric access.
In the digital realm, ensuring that users have the right access to the right resources is paramount. This is where the concept of authorization scopes comes into play. In this introductory post, we'll explore what authorization scopes are, their significance, and get a glimpse of how Rollup ID leverages them to provide a secure and user-centric experience.
ID vs. Access Tokens: While both tokens play crucial roles in authentication and authorization, they serve distinct purposes. The ID token verifies a user's authentication, while the access token grants permission to access specific resources.
OAuth 2.0, standing for "Open Authorization", is a standard protocol designed to allow an application to access resources hosted by other applications on behalf of a user. As a de facto industry standard for online authorization since 2012, OAuth 2.0 provides consented access and restricts actions of what the client application can perform on resources on behalf of the user, without ever sharing the user's credentials.
Worldcoin and Rollup ID share a common foundation: we both leverage the OpenID Connect (OIDC) protocol, a standard for user authentication that provides a secure and straightforward method for users to log in. But that's where the similarities end.
Rollup ID revolutionizes user onboarding and authorization by making it more user-centric, streamlining the process with one-click sign-ups, enabling progressive authorization, and securely empowering users to carry their credentials across multiple applications.
