HTTP Origin-Bound Authentication (HOBA) is a digital-signature-based
design for an HTTP authentication method.  The design can also be
used in JavaScript-based authentication embedded in HTML.  HOBA is an
alternative to HTTP authentication schemes that require passwords and
therefore avoids all problems related to passwords, such as leakage
of server-side password databases.

This document is a product of the Hypertext Transfer Protocol Authentication Working Group of the IETF.
