I didn't mean to bash anything Hans, just trying to see if this was something that could enhance the PivotXperience. Sorry! There are some non-technical problems with OpenID as well:

It would be nice to have an account system that 'just works' and is independent of companies or other parties with an interest. From what I've seen of it thus far, I don't think it's going to be OpenID.

Hi all,

Just to inquire if any effort went into OpenID integration for the back-end. SSL proves to be expensive, requiring a standalone IP address (still) and SSL cert. SSL cert can be self-signned, but then there's the annoying "insecure" website thingy. Some webhost offer some free IPs, but not mine. So OpenID would provide security AT-LEAST for the password transfer. The running session could still be inspected or stolen, but the password would be safe.

I've seen this article, and it doesn't seem too difficult. ... in-system/

Please let me know if there's anything ready.

Cheers, Rob

No, no work has been done in regards to OpenID (or LADP) for login. The problem is that in the current version of PivotX there are no hooks in the login/user management so implementing any of this will require hacking the core.
