DRACL is a privacy-preserving, scalable, secure, and developer and user friendly federated access control system. It allows producers to manage, through a single authentication provider, which consumers can access what content across all content hosts that support the DRACL protocol. It preserves user privacy by not revealing the producers' social networks to content hosts and consumers and allowing content consumers to access content anonymously. Unlike existing solutions, DRACL is federated (cf. Facebook Connect, Google Sign-In), does not have a single point of failure (cf. Mozilla Persona, OpenID), and does not reveal its producers' social networks to content hosts (cf. Facebook Connect's user_friends permission).
