OpenID choices


#1

Hi all,

What are people’s preferred choices for running their own OpenID server?

I have to admit that I’ve never used OpenID for systems authorisation
before, so I’m open to suggestions.

On a side note, anyone know when the non-OpenID (ssl / ssh key
sharing?) auth layer will be available? I’ve got a feeling I’m not
going to be able to get $WORK around to the idea of using it in this
fashion, mainly because it’s not something I or many of the other
engineers have used.

Cheers in advance,
Joel

I’ve heard OpenID LDAP [1] is passable.

I’d suggest using a public OpenID provider (myopenid.com) and locking
down your chef servers provider authorization and authentication [2].

0.8.0 which is currently targeted for the 4th of August, although I’m
not sure that is guaranteed.

Cheers in advance,
Joel

We’re using Atlassian’s Crowd[1] with their OpenID plugin and that’s
working really well for us. Mostly, it’s a huge advantage for us
because we heavily use Atlassian’s other products too, so we get
mostly-single sign-on across a bunch of services, now including stuff
with OpenID.

Funnily enough, cookbooks for Crowd will appear at some point soon. :slight_smile:
