OpenID

You can now use your WordPress.com blog as an OpenID.

Are you fed up with having to remember dozens of usernames and password? Does the idea of creating yet another account on yet another site leave you cold?

OpenID is a new standard that hopes to alleviate some of the pain, and we’ve just made it available to everyone who has a WordPress.com blog. This means you can sign in to a growing number of sites using your existing WordPress.com account.

You can learn more about this feature in our OpenID FAQ. Your OpenID is simply the URL of your blog; try it out at Jyte, Ma.gnolia.com or Zooomr.

    Nice, but it’d be even better if I could log in with an OpenID account. I already have one at MyOpenID; I’d love to be able to merge it with my WP.com one.

    That’s really cool. I know you’re going to provide this option eventually, but now is very good.

    No longer do I need to teach each of my 5,000 grandkids, before they reach the age of 4 and before they ever reach for a keyboard, to pick a very strange and unique name. A name which they can use as a unique login ID wherever they surf! ;) My future great grandkids thank you too — I’m a bad teacher;)

    Much rather have my I.D. in the hands of WordPress than in the hands of Microsoft.

    I haven’t had a passport since I got rid of totally sucky MSN email. I couldn’t log in half the time anyway, and they invented the darn thing!

    OpenID Trumps SAML and Liberty Alliance

    I feel bad for the folks who have put all of their effort into the SAML and Libery Alliance specifications. After years of efforts there is little to show for the protocol beyond expensive vendors who rendered the specification useless.

    At least WordPress would do its utmost to prevent any funny business, I believe; there’s some out there. In checking out one OpenID option yesterday, I believe that I happened upon a game promotion exploit.

    From a list of OpenID options I navigated to mylid.net. It seemed easy enough to try it out, so I came up with a name for the URL and a password, and submitted an email address. Later, out of curiosity, I clicked on the Get My Yadis File link, not even knowing what such a file is. A download occurred; it was entitled my name from the mylid.net URL for my account. When I opened the download, a game, 4 IN A ROW (from FREEVERSE), opened. I’ve trashed it. Anyone doubting that the download occurs can go to mylid.net, come up the registration data, click on the link, and find out.

    Nice, but I have to say I’m starting to be confused about all the places I can have an OpenID…

    Here follows another tip for keeping track of passwords, taking into account that you have a good firewall and no trojan horses sneaking around. If you are an Outlook user and still not figured out what to use your “Notes” application for, how about using it to keep track of “dozens of usernames and passwords”. Then again, OpenID is probably your safest choice.

    that’s great, however it would be nicer if we could log into wordpress.com from our own openid, since you disabled the SSL

    You can also use your openid now to sign in to Netscape.com’s news portal.

    It is great to see that wordpress is offering openids. There are only a handful of providers out there including AOL (already have one if you have an AOL SN) and MyOpenId. Great job WordPress Team!

    To be fair and not leave a misimpression, the gaming promotion exploit in Get My Yadis File at mylid.net/ was soon removed; it was merely another case of opportunists encroaching, I figure.

    OpenID enthusiasm is way out ahead of OpenID functionality. I’ve experimented with three OpenIDs, one of them from wordpress.com, and my log in success rate is not high. Others are having similar experiences. Perhaps it’s best that attempting users not invest too much trust and effort into OpenID until some of the technical issues are resolved.

    planet.openid.net/ has some interesting posts, although much of what is said is over my head.
