What: 

Description: Provision of an OpenID identity provider would allow Informatics users to authenticate automatically to external websites whilst they're authenticated to the Informatics cosign service

Deliverables: An OpenID Identity Provider, integrated with our cosign serviceq

Why: 

Customer: All users. Originally suggested by Henry Thompson at the Web innovation meeting

Case statement: OpenID is the emerging standard for federated identity assurance on the public Internet. Providing an OpenID identity provider allows Informatics users to participate in the OpenID identity federation, without creating dependencies on external providers. It allows easier use of external loosely authenticated sites.

When: 

Status: A proof-of-concept Identity Provider has been deployed on duffus for a while. This project would take that provider and turn it into a production service.
