Ideas

We want your OpenID Ideas! Think you’ve come up with a way to improve OpenID? Recognize a good idea when you see one? We want to hear from you!

  1. OpenID.net should have a friendly explanation

    I'd like to link somewhere to explain openid (from my applications that support openid sign in), and it seems like openid.net would be the logical place.

    But at openid.net, there is no clear, newbie-friendly explanation of how it actually works. I click "What is openID" and I get a whole page of text... that doesn't really answer my question.

    I think we need another link at the top... like, "How does it work" maybe?

    http://openidexplained.com is closer, but it looks a little embarrassing somehow.

  2. Open ID Login URL? - Not clear on website

    I was exploring the features and benefits of the "Intense Debate" plugin for Wordpress, and was prompted to sign into Open ID by providing my Open ID URL.

    I have a Google Account, but have never been directly asked for my Open ID account. This lead me to the Open ID website, at which point I thought the information would be clearly indicated on the "Get an Open ID" or "start using your Open ID" page. Instead, it was a bunch irrelevant information about how I already have an account, with links to useless links like Google and Yahoo's landing…

    This is a fair criticism and something that we want to address as we continue to make improvements to our newly relaunched website. It has a long way to go still, and this kind of feedback is very helpful in directing our attention. Thanks — and sorry to hear about your frustration.

  3. Encourage OpenID supported websites to have SSL option

    Alot of websites that support OpenID do not use SSL (https://), instead they only have the unsecured http://. My idea is, work with the existing and also new OpenID supported websites and encourage them to setup an https:// version of their website. For example, facebook's url could be https://www.facebook.com. The websites don't have to use https as their default url because SSL is a bit slower. But by having an SSL option it will mean OpenID users will have their info encrypted and it lowers the security risks with OpenID.

    That’s a great idea. It’s certainly something that OPs and RPs should take into consideration.

    There is currently some conversations going on about an OpenID Security Best Practices document; while the spec shouldn’t mandate SSL, it certainly should present the case for supporting it, ideally in a best practices doc.

  4. Other languages besides english.

    Translations are needed so that users from other countries can understand what OpenID is.

  5. Demo OpenID account should be given to every visitor to openid.net

    In order to help new users understand the OpenID system the following would be useful.

    Every visitor to openid.net, or the "how OpenID works" page should be given a test run account, such as demo92344.openid.net

    This account could be active for 24 hours and no password would be required. Instead the user would be presented with a page that explained this is a test account and that normally they would use a password at this step.

    During each login with this temporary OpenID users would be shown a list of permanent ID providers to use.

  6. OpenID.net should offer a test page for OPs

    I'd appretiate if OpenID.net could offer a test page for OPs. I'm currently setting up an OpenID server and there was a test service offered by Jan Rain which is now done for something felt like ages.

    So a page where you could test the OpenID you offer with test cases for all the situations which can appear telling you what's ok and what's wrong.

  7. Merging OpenID data

    I have more than one OpenID. Some of the data is common across the OpenID providers, but some is different. Is there a way to merge the data from multiple OpenID accounts into one master account?

    There’s nothing in the OpenID protocol that would really allow this, especially from the data side of things. Unlike, say, credit cards, where you can transfer your balance between different providers, data transfer between different OPs requires a bit more leg work.

    What kind of data are you talking about?

  8. identifier in email like format

    Instead of identifying myself with:
    http://example.net/john-doe

    I would prefer:
    john-doe@example.net

    We could have a standard approach where identifier@domain translates to http://domain/identifier

    I think it would give OpenID more human friendly feel than using URL format.

  9. OpenID.net should be free to register for individuals, no paid required

    I very like to growing OpenID.net indirectly, so I recommend to the OpenID.net Administrators to give the free register for individuals. So, not just me who need it, but there are still many others who need it.

  10. OpenRep - Open Reputation System

    This would be an open and distributed reputation management system that keeps track of a user's reputation throughout the many websites that make up the world wide web.

    OpenID provided us with an open and distributed authentication system, but this is where it stops.
    I believe that OpenRep is the missing layer between this and the many other 'Social Web' platforms that exist out there (blogs, social networks, e-retailers such as Amazon and Ebay).

    When a user posts a blog, comments on another user's blog, reviews a product or service, attempts to sell an item on Ebay, tries to purchase…

  11. Create flowcharts and *basic* examples for OpenID implementation.

    The JanRain library is way to overcomplicated and obfuscated to easily implement into a website. I found myself extremely confused as to what the library was doing or how OpenID really worked behind the scenes. It'd be great if this was a lot simpler, and there were some example documents (as in the result of what a website should return) showing different situations and how those translate into documents. Flowcharts could also be created to explain exactly the process of an OpenID login (not just from a basic viewpoint, but the actual HTTP calls that are made).

  14. openid.net - MD5 SSL cert?

    https://openid.net/ really shouldn't be using an MD5-hashed cert months after Sotirov presented his research demonstrating the flaws. Perhaps SHA-1 with an eye to moving to SHA-2 as soon as practical and SHA-3 as soon as it's finalized.

  15. this is inscrutably broken. Fix. Then fix explanations.

    Surprise! I may already have an OpenID... but have no way to use it that I can fathom from your instructions. "How do I log in with OpenID?" says I'll see just one thing to fill in... but I see two. And then I get shunted to a "go login somewhere else" notice... and none of this crazy stuff works.

    I'm a web expert, so this is epic fail. And have already given this 10x the attention I would normally before just running away.

  18. One’s OpenID should be a mirror reflecting his online life

    Currently, one’s email address is considered as the center of his online identity, only lesser number of websites use OpenID. On the other hand, even OpenID hasn’t recognized what are it’s potentials. ...
