I love some of the kookier OpenID authentication schemes that are out there.
Here’re a few examples of what I mean:
- http://www.jkg.in/openid/ — Does not do authentication at all. Anyone can claim any URL as their own. I call it "OpenID with null authentication".
- http://openid.xmpp.za.net/ — Sends a message to your Jabber (XMPP) account to confirm that it was you that made the OpenID request.
- http://www.myvauthid.com/ — If it’s even real (can’t connect to it tonight), it’s apparently an OpenID provider that uses voice print to authenticate you. My cell phone isn’t consistent enough for this sort of thing to even work.
