LiquidID has just launched a service which offers email aliasing and redirection in addition to providing you with an OpenID. The aliasing service sits on top of OpenID and generates email aliases for you which can then be passed on to any OpenID-enabled web services. LiquidID will receive the emails sent from the services on your behalf and redirect them to you. However, if a particular email alias ever becomes compromised and starts receiving spam, LiquidID will block it.A new OpenID provider called
LiquidID can actually run as an extension to other single sign-on (SSO) systems in addition to OpenID, but OpenID is currently the forerunner when it comes to web sites and services aimed at consumers.
The service is not a spam filter - it just protects against abuse of your email address. This offers you the ability to track what services can be trusted versus which ones can't. And, unlike spam filters, you don't need to worry about false positives.
How It Works
Basically, the way LiquidID works is this:
The service will create an email alias like email@example.com for one site you want to log into and it will create firstname.lastname@example.org for another site. As those sites send you messages, they will be automatically redirected to your inbox. This way, the sites can communicate with you, but they never have your personal information. If email@example.com is ever compromised, LiquidID will block the messages.
LiquidID has been developed by Jeremy Wyn-Harris under the privately owned entity of Epic Digitial. Jeremy has ten years of experience with startups, beginning with Epic Digital which mass produced standalone internet cameras in Australia and Singapore. He later on participated in startups which included The OpenSauce, Builderscrack, and UpStartGo.
