OpenID Implementations

with 2 comments

I have always loved Identity Management, and like Access Management. I’m a little funny, I like to be identified and want my identity to be linked on different sites. Which is why I like as an identity management system, I also like the possibility of limiting the exchange of personal information to the site to are identifying yourself too. Some may require a mail address, others may only need to verify that you are authenticated to the other site. allows commentary to be added when using an external authentication source, but does not allow blogging without your identity.

My personal favourites are VeriSign Personal Identity Provider – it has a Firefox add-on “VeriSign’s OpenID SeatBelt” – and – it allows attaching external links to your identity. You can examine many more of the implementations on the official site.
