Wiki-to-wiki authentication would involve having wikis authenticate themselves to another wiki.

Uses[edit]

Implementation[edit]

Here is one three-step possibility:

  • Step 1: Wiki A creates an account on Wiki B
  • Step 2: Wiki A provides Wiki B with a credential, e.g. a password, and an API URL
  • Step 3: Wiki B polls that API URL and receives the password; this verifies the account is indeed operated by Wiki A
