What is OpenID? How do I get one? How could I Test my OpenID?

You can read on more explained articles about OpenID if you are wondering why you should use one.

Interested already? A very nice tuturial about how to set up your OpenID exists, and detailed OSIS Testing tool is available to see if it works right. We also host a test page (see bellow). Next, you will decide to run your own OpenID server. First place to start is phpMyID - a standalone, single user, Identity Provider (IdP) which is ideal for personal usage. Now, if you want company-wide solution, you will need more.

What is this OpenID-LDAP project?

We are offering an OpenID Provider (OP) as a Free Software with LDAP support as a backend. LDAP stands for Lightweight Directory Access Protocol - Internet protocol that email and other programs use to look up information from a server. It means our Identity Provider will be multi-user and could be easily integrated into solutions based on LDAP SSO (Single sign-on). The current development version works fine with both OpenLDAP and Microsoft Server 2003 Active Directory. Once implemented, the OpenID Provider can be contacted from every OpenID-enabled web site in order to confirm local (LDAP) user identities. See Directory for a partial list of sites that really use OpenID for login or registering.

Once your server is up and running you might want to test it. You can take a read on a very nice and detailed tuturial about how to implement consumer-side support with a web site that already has users with accounts. Implementing consumer-side support for OpenID will give that web site access to your server and your LDAP based identities. If you've made it this far, congratulations!

How could I obtain the software?

The latest released OpenID-LDAP package can be downloaded for free. You may also subscribe to our mailing lists.
