OpenID is an open standard and decentralized authentication protocol. Promoted by the non-profit OpenID Foundation, it allows users to be authenticated by co-operating sites (known as Relying Parties or RP) using a third party service, eliminating the need for webmasters to provide their own ad hoc login systems, and allowing users to login to multiple unrelated websites without having to have a separate identity and password for each.[1] Users create accounts by selecting an OpenID identity provider, and then use those accounts to sign onto any website which accepts OpenID authentication. The OpenID protocol does not rely on a central authority to authenticate a user's identity. The term OpenID may also refer to an identifier as specified in the OpenID standard; these identifiers take the form of a unique Uniform Resource Identifier (URI), and are managed by some 'OpenID provider' that handles authentication.[1] Adoption[edit] Technical overview[edit] Logging in[edit] Identifiers[edit] Related:  NeWeb PrivacyHacking 1

With its headquarters in the United States, members of the consortium decide how and what work is undertaken through an open, democratic process.[1] Technical work is being carried out under the following categories: Web Services, e-Commerce, Security, Law & Government, Supply Chain, Computing Management, Application Focus, Document-Centric, XML Processing, Conformance/Interop, and Industry Domains. OASIS was first formed as SGML Open in 1993 as a trade association of SGML tool vendors to cooperatively promote the adoption of SGML through mainly educational activities, though some amount of technical activity was also pursued including an update of the CALS Table Model specification and specifications for fragment interchange and entity management.

Strong User Authentication on the Web David Chou Microsoft Corporation August 2008 Summary: Focusing on methods that are used to implement strong user authentication for online-consumer identities, this article aims to distill a comprehensive view of strong user authentication by examining its concepts, implementation approaches, and challenges/additional concerns at the architectural level. It discusses effective solution approaches, overall architecture design, and emerging developments.

One of the more exploited methods today is the gaining of account access by stealing reusable credentials for Web sites that have not yet implemented "strong" user authentication.

BPMN Business Process Modeling Notation (BPMN) web site: BPMN was developed as part of the BPMI consortium. On may 3rd 2004, the working group has published its 1.0 specification. The latest specification was published by the OMG in February 2006. Updates: 12/08/2007: I have published an article "The 7 Fallacies of Business Process Execution" which explains how BPMN and BPEL relate with each other 10/21/2007: I have published the BPMN 1.0 metamodel here. Stephen White, the main author and driver behind the specification has written an introduction to BPMN. Commentary The goal of BPMN is to provide a business process modeling notation that is readily usable by business analysts, technical developers and business people that manage and monitor these processes. BPMN allows us to create a Business Process Diagram which represent the activities of the business process and the flow controls that define the order in which they are performed. Figure 1.

Five Easy Pieces of Online Identity Every Internet service that has a concept of users has to deal with identity. And for anything social (which seems like everything these days) identity is a huge part. For the Internet as a whole, there are battles waging to "own" identity—or, at the very least, not let someone else own it. So, identity is an important concept. A while back, Twitter's CTO, Greg Pass, and I created a framework I've found useful for thinking about all this. I thought this might be useful framework for others, so, I present to you, the five pieces of online identity: 1) Authentication Question Answered: Do you have permission? There are various ways to check if someone should have access to something. There have been many attempts create "single sign-on" solutions, both decentralized and centralized, so people can walk around with a single key and get into everything they need. 2) Representation Question Answered: Who are you? Obviously people care a lot about how they appear to others in the real world. Notes

Neuf chaises vides à Amiens Les forces de l’ordre sont arrivées tôt mardi matin dans les foyers d’hébergement : neuf lycéens sans-papiers ont été arrêtés simultanément à Amiens et Abbeville (Somme). Sept d’entre eux étaient élèves au lycée professionnel Romain Rolland d’Amiens où ils apprenaient le français. Tous originaires d’Afrique, ces jeunes étaient arrivés seuls en France il y a moins d’un an, ils étaient pris en charge par l’aide sociale à l’enfance. «Ils n’ont même pas pu emporter leurs vêtements et leur traitement médical » raconte Marcel Dekervel, de la Ligue des droits de l’homme d’Amiens. Une fois placés en garde à vue, les lycéens auraient alors subi un test osseux, un examen médical controversé qui estime l’âge de la personne. Choqués, lycéens et professeurs du lycée Romain Rolland devaient manifester hier, place Gambetta, soutenus par le Réseau éducation sans frontières.

Internet Censorship - law & policy around the world Last Updated: 28 March 2002 This report contains information on government policy and/or laws regarding Internet censorship in various countries around the world. The information was compiled by EFA in March 2002 in response to a request from the Chair of a NSW Parliamentary Committee inquiring into a NSW Bill intended to censor the Internet (for background, see the Introduction section below). Contents: Introduction This report contains information on government policy and/or laws regarding Internet censorship in various countries around the world. EFA subsequently undertook extensive research into the current status of laws and government policy outside Australia. The lack of similar laws in comparable countries is not due to a failure of Parliaments or Governments to consider the problems of illegal content or content unsuitable for minors on the Internet. Overview As at March 2002, government policies concerning censorship of the Internet may be broadly grouped into four categories:
