MySpace, Flock and Vidoop Collaborate to Develop OpenID Identity in the Browser


MySpace, Flock and Vidoop have developed OpenID for Flock browser, an implementation of the broader Identity in Browser (IDIB) open source project.

OpenID for Flock allows internet users to store their existing identity credentials within their browser, but also reap the benefits of better discovery when OpenIDs are made available by the sites they are visiting. OpenID for Flock is now available to all Flock 2.0 users as an alpha extension available for download at https://extensions.flock.com and http://vidoop.com/labs/.

With OpenID for Flock, the process of discovering, configuring and using OpenIDs that allow the user to log onto website accounts and manage their identity is streamlined. Once a relationship is established between OpenIDs and the sites that can rely on them for authentication, an easy experience is created for users that frequently travel to multiple destinations across the Internet.

MySpace, Flock and Vidoop jointly developed OpenID for Flock because the browser is the common application used by everyone to make the connection between both OpenID providers and sites that support login using the OpenID standard. Vidoop was the catalyst behind the original Identity In Browser (IDIB) project. The collaboration started in October 2008 when Vidoop Labs produced a prototype of IDIB, shared the code with the community, and blogged about the need for online identity to be solved at the browser level.

While other OpenID browser extensions exist, they do not provide the OpenID discovery capabilities and management features that OpenID for Flock provides. For example, OpenID for Flock senses when a user lands on a site that has provided them with an OpenID, allows configuration, management and usage tracking of all OpenIDs the user has collected, and provides a visual alert when a stored OpenID can be used to log onto a site. Users can choose which of their OpenIDs they wish to log in for each site and view the login history for each OpenID-to-site relationship they have created.

Details on the IDIB project and OpenID for Flock are available at the project?s Google group page located at http://code.google.com/p/idib/.
