NCT Will be announcing a new product on Monday, and many of you will want it.

By Andrew Pollack on 02/02/2008 at 09:40 PM EST

Consider this a pre-announcement and offer via my blog since I have yet to integrate the blog with the home page.

The official announcement will be on Monday, for a product called simply "NCT Remember Me".

This will be a "nearly instant" drop in solution for Domino based web sites that allows you to add "Remember Me" functionality to your site with almost no effort. Users who return to your site will be recognized and re-issued valid Domino session tokens. They will actually be logged in users -- this is not a javascript hack to make it look like they're logged in. All database ACL's, Groups, Reader Names, etc. will be fully functional. If you want, you can even use it for iNotes (though it seems a bit risky to use remember-me functionality for user's mail, but that's up to you).

I'd like to say that once installed its a single javascript line to add it in, but I'm not 100% sure that's true yet. In any case, the complete installation process should be under 5 minutes. The initial release will be Domino on Win32 only, but based on demand a Linux run time will follow shortly and other servers will be considered.

Pricing will be $2500 per server or $10,000 per enterprise. With this pre-announcement, anyone who commits to one or more licenses by emailing me with the code "RememberMeCheaply" before Valentines day (a US Holiday entirely for the benefit of Hallmark Card stores) will get 20% off.

Comments, questions, and requests for features are welcome as replies here.

You are welcome Andrew :-)
Thanks. ... Bruce is referring to....By Andrew Pollack on 02/03/2008 at 01:51 PM EST email and conversation we had about this for ideaJam, and how NCT SSO
could be used. As I was saying that it could be done, I realized it was an
opportunity to do a prepackaged product around that specific use case.

The compiled library used won't even need to be altered, so its really a
documentation and custom use of NCT Single Signon.
How about Open ID?By Andrew Pollack on 02/03/2008 at 01:52 PM EST
Dwight mentioned this, and though I haven't looked at the specification yet,
but I see no reason why it couldn't be supported.

Would that be something you want?

Is Open ID widely in use yet?

Anyone have a link to what is required to call yourself "Open ID aware"?

I think that is a fair decision on their part, it's how they pay for the site. However, if you want me (and many others) to white list your site, there are some rules you should follow. If you violate these rules, I won't whitelist your site, I'll just find content elsewhere. 1. The total space taken up by advertisements ......
