OpenID is universal ID which establishes a users identity when online, hence saves trouble of logging into different sites again and again.

Heard MS have started integrating OpenID, is it true

Sumit, thanks for posting this. It seems like an interesting technology, and definitely something to consider. How exactly could you envision OpenID and Windows Live ID working together





Re: OpenID

OpenID is a single universal online identity which can be used to authentically browse on internet.In simpler terms, one can login with a single ID/password pair and then can simply browse net without loggin in further into individual sites.

Its positives:
- Single universal ID hence only one loggin in i.e. lesser traffic on net.
- Single ID hence easy for users to maintain there ID/password pair over the net.
- Login in will help in personalizing all the web - pages a user visits.
- All online users can be authenticated.
- Make internet more secure place to work on.

This idea can be given a though and implemented using various certificate issuers/ISPs/trusted third parties on the net.
Hence Windows Live simply needs to agree to authenticate OpenID users to their online resources. The registration information can obviously be collected from respective OpenID registration site. MS would hence save the trouble of maintaining the data themselves.
