Have an idea to make OpenID more secure? Tell us!

  1. A kind of "history log" of where an OpenID is used

    Dear OpenId,

    How safe is OpenID? It seems to me that having one ID for everything is a big vulnerability issue.

    For example, Person X can figure out the ID and password to a Person Y's OpenID account, giving Person X the ability to go through all of Person Y's websites.

    Does OpenID have any way of contacting a person if someone's been on their account? I suggest that OpenID should give users a detailed account to where his or her OpenID is being used.

  2. Provide details on how OpenID works

    From my initial investigation into this service, you have several security issues.

    1) How do I know when I see an OpenId box that it's actually an OpenId box and not someone who cloned one to trick me into giving away my password.

    2) My name and password aren't protected by SSL so what's to stop anyone from stealing my information over the network?

    3) If my information is vetted by some OpenId provider of some kind, that provider gets to see all the places I log in on the net and when. This creates a privacy issue

    I can't…

  3. A white paper or guide on OpenID security considertaions

    Could the foundation create a summary of how OpenID can use multi-factor authentication, PAPE, browser plugins, or other methods to improve the security of OpenID deployments?
