OpenID for Firefox4


Axel Nennker presented the Firefox addon OpenID for Firefox by discussing the main parts of the related blog posts.


The group discussed the design of the javascript API, provider enumeration threats, browser UI issues.


We agreed that there must be a way for the addon to learn the relying party requirements. A minimal requirement beeing that the site should be able to express which openid providers are trusted/acceptable.
