Mark Heiges gave a great presentation on OpenID.

If you would like to find out more, you can download the slides (PDF format).

OpenID is an open standard for single-identity authentication to web sites and services. The presentation topics included an overview of the standard, examples of the user experience, developer implementation and a look at the pros and cons of OpenID. The related OAuth standard for authorization of inter-application data exchange was covered very briefly.
