W3C Credential Management API


W3C Credential Management API describes an imperative API enabling a website to request a user’s credentials from a user-agent, and to help the user-agent correctly store user credentials for future use.

W3C Credential Management API is intentionally small and simple: W3C Credential Management API does not intend to provide authentication in and of itself, but is limited to providing an interface to the existing Credential Management implemented by existing user-agents. That functionality is valuable right now, without significant effort on the part of either vendors or authors. There’s certainly quite a bit more which could be done, of course.
