From “Authentication is Secondary” by Bob Cringely:

“Remember that all the authentication in the world will not protect against a privileged user doing the wrong thing. It’s just that logging may help to determine what happened after the fact.”

Authenticate via OpenID

You can now use OpenID to authenticate at this blog! w00t!

I have just installed the WordPress plugin OpenID (version 3.2.1). Installation was very simple: just upload the “openid” directory to the “plugin” directory and then active the plugin. The plugin allows you to assign multiple OpenIDs to your account to log in to your blog account.
