When the user’s presented with a site that Fortress is capable of signing in with, it’ll navigate them to a page that’ll inform that Fortress will sign in with said site. We confirm that the user in question can sign into the account specified by the remote service. Once that occurs, we determine the correct profile information for the newly signed in service and confirms that it both points to the URI provided as a rel-me and that the URI points back to the user’s site (using rel=me).

  • Store information about.
    • me (user)
    • rel-me values held by me.
  • Update validity of rel-me value of me on sign-in flow.

  • IndieAuth authorization endpoint
  • rel=me links to
    • GitHub
    • Twitter
    • Mastodon
    • Pleroma
