  • openid-logo-2&160; I have now way to many sub domains and websites to not try to make the registration or login process more easier

    Each of the above domains/sub domains has its own registration and login process. I would like as soon as possible try to make people register only once and let them have an easy access to all these services.

    SSO

    Single Sign on?

    Basically One solution would be likely to use OpenID

    OpenID is an open, decentralized standard for user authentication and access control, allowing users to log onto many services with the same digital identity. As such, it replaces the common login process that uses a login-name and a password, by allowing a user to log in once and gain access to the resources of multiple software systems. [WikiPedia]

    • More than 200 million users worldwide
