It’s just data

OpenID for non-SuperUsers

Based on the results of my Unobtrusive OpenID post, it is quite evident that there is a lot of partial knowledge about OpenID out there.  While my knowledge on the subject is far from complete, this post is my attempt to share what I have learned with others.

The target audience for the bulk of this post is people who are capable of adding autodiscovery links to their blog templates, may be able to install a small PHP script and/or know what a HTTP header is.

Claim Your Blog

For starters, one thing I didn’t make clear is that I was expecting people to continue to use their blog or homepage URI’s; what I did not expect was that people would start to use their identity URIs instead.  These people have identities hosted by LiveJournal, Verisign, MyOpenID, 2idi, Technorati, Vox, TypeKey, and others.

What I expected would happen instead is that people would claim their blogs using their identity.  In OpenID terms, this is called delegation, which sounds scary, but in reality it is just a form of autodiscovery, just like you do for your feed.

If you have an OpenID identity and a blog, then follow these instructions.  If you don’t have an OpenID identity, you can get one for free at MyOpenIDHere’s mine.

Given such an identity, copy the following into the head section of your weblog, adjusting the two URIs as appropriate:

<link rel="openid.server" href="http://www.myopenid.com/server" />
<link rel="openid.delegate" href="http://samruby.myopenid.com/" />

That’s pretty much it.  What this says is that the web page in question is owned by the owner of http://samruby.myopenid.com/ and furthermore http://www.myopenid.com/server may be used to verify ownership of http://samruby.myopenid.com/.

By claiming your blog or homepage in this fashion, you can then use your URI (i.e., the URI of your blog or homepage) as your identity.  Having this level of indirection is a good thing.  If you ever become dissatisfied with your identity provider for whatever reason, you can easily and transparently switch providers.

When done, feel free to check your setup.  You may find that the autodiscovery features of most OpenID libraries are not as robust as those for feed autodiscovery.  Never fear, there is a solution for this later in this post.

Master Of Your Domain

This next step is entirely unnecessary, but I suspect that it will be popular with many of the readers of this blog.  Letting someone else host your identity is actually good from a security perspective, after all, any fool can vouch for themselves (and below, I’ll show you how), but having somebody else vouch for you is often better, if for no other reason, it gives the person who is checking up on you a place to report spammers.

Of course, services can be compromised; but as already stated, you can always switch providers quickly.

The real downside is privacy.  It gives somebody else partial information about a portion of your online habits.  And much of the information that they don’t have is readily discoverable.

There is also control issues.  After all, what good is a decentralized identity system where your only real choice is to delegate to a centralized server that you don’t control?

The good news is that it is easy.  You don’t need any of these libraries.  Simply download phpMyID.  Place the one php file in on your web server and modify two lines:

'auth_username' =>      'test',
'auth_password' =>      'e8358914a32e1ce3c62836db4babaa01'

In the first, put your desired username (Duh!), and in the second one put the md5 hash of the following: username:phpMyID:password.  There are many ways to compute this, and the README suggests the following for Unix/OSX:

echo -n 'username:phpMyID:password' | openssl md5

Or the following for Windows:

md5.exe -d"username:phpMyID:password"

I’ll add that you can even get by with:

echo '<? print md5("username:phpMyID:password") ."\n" ?>' | php

Now visit the page you just updated in your browser.  It will identify itself with something like this: http://intertwingly.net:80/id/MyID.php.  Place this information in both the openid.server and openid.delegate autodisovery links, and  re-verify your setup.

Unlike other implementations, this one avoids using HTML forms for login, and instead uses HTTP digest authentication.  This is a good thing.

Update: phpMyId has changed a bit since the time this was originally written.

Decrufting

So far, you have been able to host your own identity, but let’s face it, the URIs are a bit crufty, eh?.  This shouldn’t matter much to anyone, but cleaning this up a bit will provide a bit of future proofing should you ever want to use a different implementation to host your own identity.

Often you can decruft your openid.server URI simply by renaming the script from MyID.php to index.php.  You may need you to tweak your DirectoryIndex, which in turn may require AllowOverride Indexes to be set in your Apache configuration.  Simply by doing this, my decrufted server is now:

http://intertwingly.net/id/

Decrufting your openid.delegate is even easier.  Simply find the line in the php script that sets $idp_url and add another line after it which sets it to the value you want it to be.  By setting it to my weblog address, I can eliminate the need for a openid.delegate autodiscovery link entirely!

$idp_url = 'http://intertwingly.net/blog/';

YADIS

At this point, I have two Identities, but I can only declare one, and can only declare it in a rather fragile and HTML specific manner.  This is good enough for most purposes, and one can certainly stop there.

But let’s not.

YADIS defines a simple format for declaring multiple identities, potentially using multiple different protocols.  Here’s what mine looks like so far:

<xrds:XRDS xmlns:xrds="xri://$xrds" xmlns="xri://$xrd*($v*2.0)"
      xmlns:openid="http://openid.net/xmlns/1.0">
  <XRD>

    <Service priority="1">
      <Type>http://openid.net/signon/1.0</Type>
      <URI>http://intertwingly.net/id/</URI>
      <openid:Delegate>http://intertwingly.net/blog/</openid:Delegate>
    </Service>

    <Service priority="2">
      <Type>http://openid.net/signon/1.0</Type>
      <URI>http://www.myopenid.com/server</URI>
      <openid:Delegate>http://samruby.myopenid.com/</openid:Delegate>
    </Service>

  </XRD>
</xrds:XRDS>

Not too bad, eh?  Two services, one of a lower numerical (and therefore higher logical) priority that I host myself, and one using MyOpenID; both associated with http://openid.net/signon/1.0.  This information is simultaneously richer, more extensible, and easier to consistently parse than autodiscovery links placed in HTML as practiced on the web today.  Just be sure to return this information with the correct MIME type:

AddType application/xrds+xml .xrdf

Now, how do I connect it in with my weblog?  It turns out that there are multiple ways, so let me start out with what I consider the best way to be: redirecting requests based on the value of the HTTP accept header, thus:

RewriteCond %{HTTP_ACCEPT} application/xrds\+xml
RewriteCond %{HTTP_ACCEPT} !application/xrds\+xml\s*;\s*q\s*=\s*0(\.0{1,3})?\s*(,|$)
RewriteRule ^$ http://intertwingly.net/public/yadis.xrdf [R,L]

I like that way best because tools looking for my identity don’t first have to fetch my blog at all.  The next best way involves a HTTP header which you can set thus:

<Files index.html>
  Header onsuccess set X-XRDS-Location http://intertwingly.net/public/yadis.xrdf
</Files>

Finally, one can put this information in the HEAD sections of HTML documents, but only as a last resort:

<meta http-equiv="X-XRDS-Location" content="http://intertwingly.net/public/yadis.xrdf">

As always, when done, check your setup.  In fact, you might find it instructive to check mine.

Recap

Astute readers will note that I still have the link in my main weblog home page.  That’s a fallback for consumers that don’t (yet) support YADIS.

All told: I signed up for one free service, installed and tailored one PHP script, added one line to my weblog template, created one simple XML file and added a total of four lines to my .htaccess files.

Frankly, I found the OpenID spec confusing to read because it used common terms in an uncommon  mix of semantics. For example, ‘End User’ as ‘cardholder’ and ‘Consumer’ as web service.

Posted by Don Park at

Don,

“Consumer” was OpenID 1.0 terminology. Now that other groups have joined the party (LID, DIX, XRI, ...) OpenID 2 has switched to calling it the “Relying Party”, which is apparently the standard terminology for such things. (I’d never heard of it before this, personally!)

As far as I’m aware, the term “cardholder” does not appear anywhere in any OpenID specification past, present or future. The end user is called the end user.

The other “crazy term” was “IdP” (for “Identity Provider”, in 1.0 simply called the “server"), but that has recently been renamed to simply "OpenID Provider” (or "OP"), which I think is much clearer.

Posted by Martin Atkins at

Thanks for the step-by-step tips.  I wasn’t sure where I should go for an OpenID provider.  Ideally someone already frequently handling my ID, such as Google or Yahoo should be my provider.  Someday, perhaps...

Odd.  I can successfully log in as http://intertwingly.net/blog/ at the LiveJournal site.

I’m clearly new to this, but I reason thus: the XRD file isn’t my identity, it contains a list of identities.  One of the identities listed is my weblog.

The reason I like the explicit, external redirect is twofold: (1) it actually shows up in my Apache logs, and (2) I’m not normally a fan of content negotiation for the reasons Joe Gregorio gives.  Having this data available under a separate URI makes me feel better.

Thank you for this article. It really simplifies the process of OpenID-enabling.

As for X-YADIS-Location, I think it’s a should rather than can. It won’t hurt to have it in the header just in case. I also believe the http-equiv value should be X-XRDS-Location.

But could I ask you to update this thread on the progress you do on the OpenID discussion list as I (and many others, I’d expect) don’t subscribe to it?

If anything definitive comes out I will certainly update this entry (and update atom:updated), but at the present time, it appears that the discussion has wandered off into other topics.

The current status: I did an external, temporary redirect as I wanted to see this activity in my Apache Logs.  The current status is that some servers will treat this as a permanent redirect, and use my XRD file as my identity (something that works just fine).  Those that care about such things can drop the [R] and replace the URI with either a relative or absolute file path and neither the Identity Provider nor your Apache logs will ever see the redirect happened.

Your preferred method for linking your XRDS to your blog URL will actually break your identity: a correct implementation will use the final destination URL (after following all redirects) as the claimed identifier, so you’ll end up being http://intertwingly.net/public/yadis.xrdf instead of http://www.intertwingly.net/blog/.

The other two methods (X-XRDS-Location header and HTML Meta tags) are the ones supported by Yadis discovery.

Your preferred method for linking your XRDS to your blog URL will actually break your identity

How will this “break” my identity?

A correct implementation, if it uses Yadis discovery, will use http://intertwingly.net/public/yadis.xrdf as the claimed identifier; it is still yours, but a different one as far as the RP is concerned, while you assume / would like it to be the same one. This is what I meant by ‘breaking’.

Despite this alleged breakage, I can successfully sign on to openidenabled and livejournal.  And validate with the JanRain Python library.

Can’t speak for them - they may be using HTML discovery, not Yadis. It may be worth checking this directly with them.

I explicitly and intentionally chose a temporary redirect.  Does it make sense for YADIS to treat this response the same way it treats a permanent redirect?

As is being discussed in the related thread [http://openid.net/pipermail/general/2007-January/000946.html] on the OpenID list, redirects are not (yet) part of Yadis, and all redirects are treated the same in OpenID (in the normalization section).

Regarding phpMyID: is it not important if using this to run it on a SSL-enabled server?  Given you will be entering your ‘master’ password for your openid profile it seems silly to send it in clear-text!

Regarding phpMyID: is it not important if using this to run it on a SSL-enabled server?  Given you will be entering your ‘master’ password for your openid profile it seems silly to send it in clear-text!

While TLS/HTTPS would be superior, phpMyID usses HTTP digest authentication, which means that the password is not sent in the clear.

Excerpt from claimID weblog - Manage your online identity. at

OpenId is interesting and I see something that would push a bit further. I will try to explain a bit.

Weblog Comments and Weblog posts are exactly of same nature. They have an author, they refer to a content sometimes (either another comment or a weblog post), they have a text, a date, etc.

But why do we have to comment ON the weblog as I do now, when we could all comment on our system AND keep track, traces, archives of our comments locally. What would be neat is that comments section on people’s weblog would be just an aggregation of the comment/posts made elsewhere. hmmm yeah. Nothing new. Is it not what Trackback was proposing, but failed in part because of spam. Indeed.

Though come OpenId. Would it be possible to have a trackback+openid combination. When the trackback is done, it’s not only a link to the post which is made but the aggregation of the full content in the commenting zone.

Another way of doing it is that when you are registered with an openid, your openid system aggregates all your comments done elsewhere.

Great stuff; thanks for the very detailed instructions.  You need to update the instructions with the latest versions of MyID.php, since for the non-PHP expert the latest 0.5 doesn’t set $idp_url directly anymore.  Instead, it checks ! array_key_exists('idp_url', $profile), and if not, then defaults it to the current server.

The only other comment for non-experts is to carefully follow the MyID.php setup, especially the .htaccess stuff if needed: it relies on being served properly, which requires that your webhost allow you to use specific directives.

In the redirect line for yadis, there is a [R,L] (Redirect, Last).

This produces as a result that the PIBB service will use the yadis URL as User URL (not sure if rightly or not). Switching to [P,L] (Proxy, Last) solved it here, and it looks that it produces no secondary effects, aside from a bit of access_log spam.

myID is providing a simple way to use your own URL as your OpenID even for people other than developers.  Simply follow the steps.
 
Here’s URL : [link]

1) Go to “Use your own URL as your OpenID”
2) Type in your myID account and sign in.
3) Copy and paste the three URLs that appear onto the head section of your blog or homepage.
4) Now you can use your own URL as your OpenID.

I’ve a question about open id. Open id seems to be really useful and helpful for identification . But, how about automatic identification ?
if I log in a website with classical informations, a cookie can be create and use to reconnect me automatically.
If I use open id ? What happens ? Can I be reconnected automatically too ? Can I be reconnected automatically on all the website that accept my open id identification ?

But, how about automatic identification ?

With OpenID, you log into your website, and then the website you want to use verifies that that login was done.  The way you log into your website can use cookies.  The verification is automatic.

This is a great article, it’s rare to find something this fiddly explained so clearly.

Posted by Jonathan Spence at

Two days ago I was so happy to find what OpenID is, and with the help of Sam Ruby’s phpMyID script I was able to get my own single user OpenID provider. The next question is: What happens if my server is down when I want to access a resource that requires my OpenID? It seems I’ll not be able to use it.

I think YADIS can be of some help if the yadis.xrdf will be available at a third-party server: “YADIS defines a simple format for declaring multiple identities, potentially using multiple different protocols.”. I said ok, that’s good, if one identity can’t be checked, the second one can be used. It reminds me about loadbalancing and DNS nameservers. But it generates the next question: how SiteXYZ.com should treat two identities? where can I specify that two identities X and Y are aliases for the main Z identity.

After some readings about OpenID, I found ([link]) that there are many security, privacy, trust, usability and other problems. So now I’m scratching my head and think: should I really use OpenID? ... I think yes, but not for private things.

In the idcorner.org link above, I saw this: “Your identity provider is able to track all websites you log into. They even tell you it’s a feature. User profiling made easy!”. Ouch! Now I understand how important phpMyID is: nobody will be able to track your activities :)

Answer by mpbloch for What personal information does an OpenID provider make available to the consumer?

If you want to drop open ID from GMail, you should look into setting up an openID delegate on your blog or some other HTML URL you control. Also, whenever I sign up for a new site using my OpenID, I get the -option- of transferring my stored fields...

thx alot for this tutorial! i turned my blog page into an openid. the other steps seem a little bit more difficult, so i will leave them for another time. i noticed that this link — [link] doesn’t work, it gives me 503 error. is there another test service you can recommend?

Posted by Dimitar Chakarov at

i copied and pasted the 2 uri’s into my header.php file and adjusted the second one for my own openid account (that i just opened) but it doesn’t seem to be working. 

<link rel="openid.server" href="http://www.myopenid.com/server" />
<link rel="openid.delegate" href="http://loveliette.myopenid.com/" />

i tried to leave a comment on my old blogger blog using my new blog as my openid but it didn’t work, i get this error: “your open id credentials could not be verified.” 

i’m not sure what i’m doing wrong.  i use wordpress though i host the blog myself.  if you could clarify that would be great, thanks in advance!

Posted by jen at

sorry for the second comment - i see that the link to my blog (in my first comment) is working on this site but not on blogger - i was able to publish my test comment on blogger but when i click on my name it goes to my openid page, not my blog which i don’t like.

I recently registered myself to a site which asked me for my ‘open Id’ while registration. A number of sites are nowadays following this concept of ‘OpenId’,which for sure reduces the hassle of keeping track of various accounts made online.

I’m new to OpenID. I just created one, above, and tried it on SlashDot. It recognized it but said I had to log in to “attach” it to an account. What good is that?

If Sam is an expert and, based on all the corrections in the comments, claiming your blog with Open ID must be really hard to do.

Also I think it’s interesting that these comments have the posting time right down to the second but we can’t even tell what year is was. Very strange design choice.

Peace,

Rob:-]

Posted by RobShaver at

If Sam is an expert

I didn’t know what I was doing at first, but managed to muddle through it, and document what I did.  At most, that makes me a bit of a trailblazer.  It certainly doesn’t make me an expert.

we can’t even tell what year is was

The full date of the original post is at the top, just under the title.  Comments are grouped into sections, each containing comments that were made on the same day.  The date is included iin the header above each section.

Additionally, if you hover over the timestamp for an individual entry, you will see the full timestamp for that entry.  That’s the design choice here: not to repeat the same information in each entry.

Minor bit of trivia: depending on your time zone, you might see different posts included in each section, depending on which day the comment was posted — relative to your time zone.  The times themselves are also localized.

Posted by Sam Ruby at

Sam, thanks for writing this!

I was hung up for a while because, even though I followed the instructions precisely, my password wasn’t being accepted.

I looked at the README for phpMyID and discovered the problem. (I don’t know whether or not this applies to all versions of phpMyID.) Since my server runs PHP in safe mode, PHP adds a number to the end of the authentication realm, so the realm was “phpMyID-XXXXXX” instead of “phpMyID”.

The password is really supposed to be a md5 hash of ‘username:realm:password’, so I had to change it from ‘username:phpMyID:password’ to ‘username:phpMyID-XXXXXX:password’.

If anyone else uses PHP in safe mode, you’ll need to make that change. You can check the realm by going to your phpMyID page, where it lists the server. (See Sam’s original instructions where it says "Now visit the page you just updated in your browser.")

Can I ask when was the last time this was updated as it would seem some of the links and steps have changed within this tutorial.  For example phpmyID is now v0.9.  The check your setup does not seem to work.  While I’d love to sign up to a Janrain engage I simply do not have the dollars to cover the required for the plans, yes the free one is there but it is very limited.

For the phpmyid part you say to ‘put the md5 hash of the following: username:phpMyID:password’

Sorry to be a newb but do I substitute the username and password with my myopenid username and password or just enter it as exactly as the above?
