Open ID (http://openid.net) is an attempt to allow you to use the same credentials to log in on many web sites without having to remember different id and passwords. The idea is that you authenticate with any site that accepts Open ID based on credentials that you control. Your AIM address, for example, can be used as an Open ID. You may have many Open ID's, but a single Open ID can only be owned by one person.
This site explains it better, I think: http://janrain.com/openid/
Anyway, I don't think it would be too hard for me to create a general use Open ID implementation for Domino -- I'm just wonder how much demand there is out there.

here in italy (I'm part of the italian user group www.dominopoint.it).
I was looking into doing this and I wanted to support all the features
(authentication/mapping to a names entry, and extra fields exchange).
I can't see it as being easy using pure domino (openid does some back-end http
stuff that needs state).
But if you say it's easy I'd like to contribute with work & testing.
Note: I'm on bleedyellow, we can get in contact trough sametime if you use it.
