+ - The Case for OpenID

Submitted by Anonymous Coward
An anonymous reader writes: VeriSign and NetMesh are making the case for OpenID, the grass-roots, decentralized digital identity system already supported by LiveJournal, Six Apart, Technorati, VeriSign and many startups, reportedly growing 5% every single week. They say OpenID "is fundamentally different from other identity technologies" because it is a "fully decentralized system" and has a "much lighter cost structure" than any alternative, like Microsoft Passport, CardSpace or Liberty Alliance.
