Open Up Your ID With Rails
- Rails Wiki OpenID
- The No Shit Guide To Supporting Openid In Your Applications – Dan Web covers how to implement openid in a rails app.
- Tim Bray on OpenID – Bray covers the issues with openid such as phishing and ssl not being a requirement.
- Six cool things you can build with OpenID – Simon Willison talks about some cool things you can do with openid such as single sign on and light accounts.
Like it or not, OpenID has gained a lot of ground in the past few weeks and it’s probably time for you to start looking at it. Personally, I have an account with myopenid.com and I’ve been enjoying signing on to my ma.gnolia account with it.
What are your thoughts on OpenID? Do you have an account that you use regularly? What sites do you use it on? Do you have concerns that were not raised in any of the articles above? I’m just curious to hear what others are thinking on this issue.
