Too
Much
Coooooooode!

Any of you actually understand this new OpenID thing?

Oh, and anyone actually *got* a Treo 650 yet?

ciphergoth is largely responsible for the protocol, so asking him would probably be a good start.

I suspect that Paul's involvement may explain both my impression that it looks like it should work, and my complete inability to follow the algorithms.

Heh. He really wants to get it into MediaWiki too, for our planned single-signon feature; I advised him on how to do this on Friday. (Precis: Brion, the lead developer, is a good open-source fascist: unforgiving of dodgy code but a nice fellow and not hard to deal with. It must fulfill an actual need or want; it must be friendly to the large, overworked and touchy databases; it must be clean and lovely code. That it's alive and well on LiveJournal is a strong point in its favour.)

Can you be more specific on where your confusion lies?

You go to example.com and say "Hey, I'm livejournal.com/~wechsler!"
example.com says "You'll have to get proof of that from livejournal.com" and redirects you there.
Livejournal.com says "Yes, you're wechsler" and gives you a token that says "The bearer is livejournal.com/~wechsler, and this token is for example.com". It redirects you back to example.com to pass the token on to them.
example.com receives the token, cryptographically verifies it, and says "OK, you are Wechsler after all."

Just about got that side of it, it's the btwoc(hash(sha(p^q))) stuff that's currently orbiting somewhere above my head.

Once I can figure that side of it I'll probably add it into phasecode to allow auth for gallery viewing and suchlike.

Yes, but deathboy would be rather taken with a wart remover if it came with LEDs. *smirk*

So, would it be unbearably cruel of me to get a Treo for myself and give Jason my "old" phone (Motorola V330)? We've got a nice deal here through work, only $330 ... and he's using a three year old phone on a pay-as-you-go plan ...
