Plone OpenID authentication support

Project description


This packages makes Plone a complete OpenID consumer, allowing people to authenticate in a site using their OpenID identity. It relies on the plone.openid package to implement authentication of identities and needs an external session management plugin such as plone.session to add session management.

You also need version 2.2.x of the python-openid package from JanRain. If this package is not installed you will not be able to install OpenID support in Plone.


If all requirements have been installed you should see an OpenID Authentication Support appearin the Add/Remove Products page in the Plone site setup screen. Installing the OpenID authentication support will do several things:

  • the PAS user folder is reconfigured to support OpenID authentication
  • an OpenID login portlet is added to the left column
  • the standard login form is replaces with a form which supports both OpenID logins and standard username&password logins
