> I can point you to some articles that I wrote regarding OpenID,

> time and of course if you are still curious you can go research
> First of all, OpenID is a very simple but rather useful technology.
> With OpenID you have only one account, your ID, which you can use
> everywhere where the OpenID technology is supported. It is not clear
> whether this setup is more secure from what we have at the moment
> (every site forces you to register unique username/password pair) but

> usernames, password, the higher the chances this information to be
> leaked or stolen. On the other hand, OpenID is prone to phishing
> attacks so user education is required.
> Think about OpenID as the equivalent of PayPal for authentication. In
> theory, it is more secure to pay through paypal as you are not sharing
> your credit card information with everyone else but a single provider.
> I am all "for" OpenID as you can spend good time on securing a single
