The past year has been an exciting one for OpenID. Millions of OpenID’s have been created, thousands of sites support OpenID, and a growing ecosystem of fans, developers and advocates are proving that an open approach to identity makes sense. As the network of value around OpenID grows, our OpenID providers need to be trustworthy and secure. ClaimID has long been one of the most trusted OpenID providers on the net; while we offer banking-quality security, we felt it was time to take our product to the next level.
To do so, ClaimID will integrate Confident Technologies RecognitionAUTH system. The RecognitionAUTH system offers users an innovative and highly secure second factor in authentication. This enhancement will solve many of the criticisms of the OpenID security model, providing you with an account you can use with confidence going forward.
We’re excited to be working the the Confident/Vidoop team on this integration, particularly our friend and advocate Scott Kveton download movies. In enhancing security, we hope ClaimID users will feel more comfortable, and more secure as they choose us as their identity provider. We hope to deploy RecognitionAUTH soon – so watch this space for more details.
