OpenID: what is it and what can it do for me?

Drupal 6 will have support for OpenID in core. Microsoft, AOL,, Digg, SixApart and Verisign have all pledged (and in some cases rolled out) support for it. So, what's the big deal?
This session will cover some background on Identity2.0, what it enables and how it changes the way we approach our online identities. We'll look at how the protocol works: specifically discussing the security considerations and implications. We'll also cover how to use the drupal modules, with some demos. We'll finish the hour with a look at the possibilities this technology can enable.
