@bombastic bob, oh MAH GAHD! DA-RAHMAH! *eyeroll*

This is not much different from password managers already, except good implementations of these and other APIs (and methods of 'automatic' authentication) can mitigate risk significantly.

Google does OIDC already, Facebook does too, the scientific and academic communities ON THE PLANET rely on OIDC, SAML (SAML2 Web Profile to be specific), and certificates, so this... this is just a natural progression.

Nothing overly DA-RAHMAH-tic here.
