This specification defines the Dialback Access Authentication Scheme. It provides a way for HTTP clients to identify an Internet host or account responsible for an HTTP request, and for HTTP servers to verify that identity by sending a token to a declared dialback endpoint. The specification defines a new HTTP authentication scheme, "Dialback". It also defines a new link relation, "dialback", to specify the endpoint for the dialback verification. Finally, it defines the interface for the dialback endpoint.
