(Migrated) Web admin SSO with OpenID

(This message has been automatically imported from the retired mailing list)

Hello,

there’s a new feature in git master that lets one log into web admin
using SSO OpenID instead of regular passwords.

Here’s a blog post describing it

OpenID is just an authentication provider, A Single Sign On, like CAS in
Java or django-mama-cas in Python is more than an authentication provider
and can be used with OpenID or any other authentication provider. As is
said in

Single-sign-on is about logging on in one place and having that
authenticate you at other locations automatically. OpenID is about
delegating authentication to an OpenID provider so you can effectively log
on to multiple sites with the one set of credentials.

You could use OpenID as your authentication scheme for SSO but that’s
incidental.

Yes, you are correct. My bad on the language. You need to provide
credentials with the provider, this is correct.
