> Hi Andre,
> Thanks for starting this thread around home server and SSO. These are the
> two essential ingredients for re-decentralizing the web and I am not aware
> of any consumer-grade way to offer such an appliance today. I have been
> following the FreedomBox project for many years hoping it would eventually
> help with a supported edicated server / SSO appliance.
> Our project, HIE of One http://hieofone.org/ blends existing standards
> for a self-sovereign authorization server (UMA -
> https://kantarainitiative.org/confluence/display/uma/Home ) and rapidly
> emerging standards for self-sovereign identity for SSO, self sovereign
> identity (DID - https://w3c-ccg.github.io/did-method-registry/ ), and
> Verifiable Credentials (https://www.w3.org/2017/vc/WG/ ) into a single
> personal appliance or VM. We call this a self-sovereign technology stack.
> Other servers such as mail servers or health records (our use-case) can
> then be controlled in both the authentication and authorization sense by
> the HIE of One.
> In my experience, the HIE of One (stands for Health Information Exchange
> of One) way of approaching SSO is much more powerful than previous methods
> such as SAML and OpenID Connect that require federation in order to work.
> Federation is an inherently centralized and governance-sensitive
> architecture that inserts itself between a person's credentials
> (self-asserted or verified) and the use of the credentials to gain
> authorization for an action. Blockchain-based trust can replace federation
> trust with much less risk of censorship and privacy violations. Besides
> DID, HIE of One also allows for OpenID Connect SSO if the individual is
> willing to whitelist trusted identity providers.
> Another project that is trying to build consumer-friendly personal server
> appliances is https://ubos.net/
> As I currently see it, FreedomBox does not have a focus on creating a
> supported dedicated consumer server appliance. The focus seems more on
> enabling people to support themselves. As the hardware cost approaches $50,
> the current FreedomBox strategy of self-support makes less and less sense.
> Adoption would be vastly accelerated if people could buy separate,
> standards-based (for substitutability), appliances that could be supported
> by others the way we currently install apps in the walled gardens of our
> mobile hardware.

Im using workaround.org ispmail tutorial. Its been around for a while and
it always uses debian stable


It has an ansible repo at the end of the tutorial. Which is what i
integrated in my server ansible repo. Quite complete from my pov
