What is OpenID?
OpenID is a technology that allows you to use a single user log-in at any website
that supports OpenID. This means that for sites that support OpenID you will
never need to create and remember another username/password combination.
For more information see: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/OpenID
How does it work?
Once you enter your eXtensionID or other OpenID and click login, you will be redirected to the provider website to login.
When you have logged in successfully; you will redirected back to the EDEN site. If it is your first time accessing the EDEN site
with your eXtensionID or other OpenID that provider will ask you if you want to
allow the EDEN site to verify your identity.
What is an eXtensionID?
eXtensionID's are provided by eXtension.org to individuals closely associated with the U.S. Cooperative Extension system (either those working at a Land-Grant Institution, State college or U.S. Government personnel affiliated with Cooperative Extension), or individuals in Extension-related organizations workings on projects with Cooperative Extension staff.
eXtensionID's are automatically
OpenID logins that can be used on any OpenID-enabled site.
How do I obtain an eXtensionID?
To obtain an eXtensionID, go to
What if I already have an eXtensionID but don't know my OpenID for it?
Your OpenID version of your eXtensionID is just your eXtensionID tacked
on to the end of "https://people.extension.org/" If your eXtensionID is joesmith,
your OpenID would be https://people.extension.org/joesmith
How do I obtain an OpenID other than through eXtension?
Although we now require that you use your eXtension as your OpenID provider, there are many other providers you can choose from for your own information and use at other sites.
To obtain an OpenID, select a valid provider and sign up.
