Authentication systems


I have been thinking about this for a while, but I couldn’t see how a single person could build a trust system for sites that don’t need alot of authentication or security. Now it seems that Verisign are tackling the problem by creating OpenID as reported by Arstechnica .

As they say, other companies have tried and failed, but I am hoping that it will provide a central, safe and non-intrusive way of sharing logins etc across sites that don’t require strong encryption for credit cards etc..

I will be supporting OpenID as soon as I can.
