  • 1. Update on OpenID Plans for 2010 OpenID UX Summit, Chicago Joseph Smarr Feb 25, 2010
  • 2. Google strongly believes in the vision of OpenID
    • “ I’m incredibly excited about this unique opportunity to turbo-charge my passionate pursuit of a Social Web that is more open, interoperable, decentralized, and firmly in the control of users .” -- me on joining Google
    • … 5 weeks into my new job, I’m even more excited!
  • 3. What are people asking us for?
  • 4. What are people asking us for?
      • More APIs attached to our OpenID Provider (esp. integration with Buzz)
      • More high-quality OPs (other than Google)
      • Start accepting OpenIDs from other providers (become an RP)
  • 5. What are we doing about it?
  • 6. What are we doing about it?
      • More APIs attached to our OpenID Provider (esp. integration with Buzz)
        • Adding more APIs as quickly as we can build them
          • Buzz now lets us work towards the “virtuous cycle of social discovery”
        • Using open standards for APIs and data wherever possible
          • Portable Contacts, Activity Streams, PubSubHubbub, etc.
        • Supporting OAuth WRAP Profile (in addition to OAuth)
          • Initial live support for some APIs expected in March / April
  • 7. What are we doing about it?
      • More high-quality OPs (other than Google)
        • Participating in OpenID summits (like this one!) and co-hosting with MSFT in April
        • Will be among initial OIX-certified providers in March (for govt adoption)
        • Will continue to maintain a best-in-class OpenID provider and share learnings
  • 8. What are we doing about it?
      • Start accepting OpenIDs from other providers (become an RP)
        • Actually, we’re already an RP for >1000 Google Apps domains!
          • We still feel a lot of RP pain (need separate account to use Google Reader, etc.)
          • Can’t solve login UI with “nascar”  need scalable federation UI (e.g. via webfinger)
        • We’re committed to solving the outstanding RP problems ASAP
          • About to announce deprecation of ClientLogin  moving to OAuth for desktop / mobile
          • Forcing ourselves to get this right for web (e.g. Reader), desktop (e.g. Picasa), and mobile (e.g. gmail on android / blackberry / etc.)
          • Will share as many best practices / lessons / code / etc. as possible
        • Work needed to become a consumer RP is largely the same…
  • 9. So, are we addressing “What an RP Needs”? (my presentation at the last OpenID Summit)
  • 10. What an RP Needs
    • More high-quality OPs
    • Desktop / mobile / API best practices
    • Solution to the “Nascar problem”
    • Confidence that RP users are 1st class
    • Virtuous cycle
  • 11. My conclusions
      • We’re not done yet, but we’re working on all the right things
      • We’re going to make a lot of progress in 2010
      • Let’s go!
