The DataPortability technical blueprint uses OpenID to provide decentralized identity. OpenID 2.0 Attribute Exchange (AX) is utilised for discovery of user service details. XRDS/YADIS are utilised to provide the details of the various services a user employs.

A distributed File System for data. The technologies already exist, we simply need a complete reference design to put the pieces together.
