#4574: XEP-0070: Verifying HTTP Requests via Jabber
Reporter:  niess   |       Owner:  nwalp             
    Type:  defect  |      Status:  new               
Priority:  minor   |   Component:  XMPP              
 Version:  2.3.1   |    Keywords:  XEP-0070 http-auth

 With [http://jauto.sourceforge.net/ jauto] there still exists an
 implementation of [http://www.xmpp.org/extensions/xep-0070.html XEP-0070]
 for Jabber. Now I'm interested that pidgin can handle the confirmation
 requests and ask the user if he wants to verify his HTTP request. This
 could be done by a popup window.

 The key arguments for implementing this extension are in my opinion:
  1. Single Sign On (SSO) is comfortable for users
  1. SSO is good for security reasons because there is no password to
 transfer over the internet
  1. [http://www.xmpp.org/extensions/xep-0070.html XEP-0070] present a good
 way for SSO to websites
  1. the more Jabber clients that support this feature, the more likely
 this XEP will be used more at the server.
