Build a plugin to provide OpenId authentication.

[Tutorial about OpenId in the Zend_Framework using Zend_Auth_OpenId](http://devzone.zend.com/article/3141-Lifting-the-Skirt-on-Zend-Framework-1.5-Zend_Auth-and-the-OpenId-Adapter)

Refs #5534 Review the Login plugin to make it really modular (refactor the Auth class)

The Zend folks released ZF 1.7 in November. Should Piwik update its Zend install? (It looks like ZF 1.0.)

vipsoft, I created a new ticket: #497 to update ZF

For login page, might consider using: http://code.google.com/p/openid-selector/ or http://code.google.com/p/openid-realselector/

(Some might prefer the more compact example at pibb.com.)

See IDIB Beacon for OpenID discovery. http://code.google.com/p/idib

Sorry for posting this here and in the forum. I would like to know if you guys have already developed something for this OpenID plugin. I would like to work on that OpenID-Plugin as well. Who can i contact to help with the development?

Best regards,
yato

No work has been done on this plugin, or it would appear in this ticket.

yato: if you're volunteering, either matt or myself would be able to answer your questions.

This ticket is primarily to add an OpenID consumer using Zend_Auth_OpenId. Hooks to the "login" and "user management" forms would probably be needed (e.g., to associate an OpenID with a Piwik user).

It would be optional to provide an OpenID producer via Piwik.

Maybe adding oAuth authentication would be more useful than adding OpenID... any thoughts?

oAuth is in #906 -- it would be alternative to (or replacement for) token_auth.

OK so this plugin is about Authenticating users in Piwik with OpenID, but not about changing the token_auth API authentication mechanism at all, correct?

Replying to matt:

I think that would be good.

Sorry for not posting for a long time. Had a lot of other stuff to do.
My thoughts/questions so far:

  • piwik is just a OpenID consumer (as vipsoft wrote)
  • the plugin will be an alternative or addition to the standard login
  • using the openif-selector seems good as well. But maybe starting with a simple openID-only version and expand that later?

greets,
yato

(In [3694]) fixes #1765 - updating to Zend Framework 1.11.2 with some modifications:

ZF-10888: loadClass() inconsistencies

  • Zend/Http/Client.php
  • Zend/Uri.php
  • Zend/Validate.php

ZF-10890: include_path dependency and inconsistencies

  • Zend/Validate/Hostname.php

refs #5580 - added Zend_OpenId

In http://forum.piwik.org/read.php?3,71393, we have a suggestion to add Yubikey support (which can augment OpenId). At the moment, the php libraries for Yubikey would require rework before we could consider implementing as a plugin. (php-yubico from the vendor requires PEAR, while the third-party, standalone yubikey-php-webservice-class is license incompatible with Piwik.) That said, John Salter for Yubico has offered a couple of YubiKeys for evaluation/test.

OpenId is not 'cool' anymore? sorry...

This plugin would really complement the signup plugin #1148. There's anecdotal evidence that OpenID has lower abandonment rates than traditional email for sign-up.

And I think 2 factor authentication may be a nice addon in general.

Definitely agree, it is a great contribution idea if anyone is interested!
