Weaving OpenID into the Browser

A few minutes ago, a tweet by @sofiaviolet  led me to an interesting blog post by Scott Gilbertson.  Scott discussed an experimental Firefox plugin from the folks at Mozilla Labs that uses the Mozilla Weave service to enable automatic website login using either username/password or OpenID.  A short video by Labs developer Dan Mills shows how easily it works.

I still have several questions about security, but this certainly begins to address the ease of use issues I mentioned in my earlier post about Identity in the Browser (IDIB).

About

Discovering Identity was founded on blogs.sun.com in May 2005 as a means of documenting my exploration of the field of Identity and Access Management. In February, 2010, I switched to hosting the blog at DiscoveringIdentity.com. In March 2012, I began posting Oracle-related information in both places.

Thanks for stopping by.
