    v3 v4  
    11= Support for OpenID = 
    22 
    3 The goal is to let users attach to projects using OpenID. 
     3The goal is to let people use OpenID to attach and log in to BOINC projects. 
    44 
    5 == Interface == 
     5There are now two types of accounts on a given BOINC project: 
     6 
     7 * those authenticated with a project-specific password; a password hash is stored in the DB. 
     8 * those authenticated via an OpenID provider; the provider URL is stored in the DB. 
     9 
     10In both cases, an email address uniquely identifies the account; 
     11OpenID can be used only with providers who return an email address and a name. 
     12 
     13== Web interface == 
     14 
     15The Login page will show links to various OpenID providers 
     16as well as an email/password form. 
     17 
     18NOTE: logging in with OpenID automatically creates an account 
     19if no account with that email address exists. 
     20If an account does exist, its name and country fields are overwritten with 
     21data supplied by the OpenID provider, if any. 
     22 
     23On the Your Account page, instead of "change email address" and "change password" links, 
     24there will be a "change login information" link. 
     25This will go to a page that: 
     26 
     27 * lets an OpenID account change to a different OpenID 
     28 * lets an OpenID account change to an email/password account 
     29 * lets an email/password account change to an OpenID account 
     30 
     31On the "change other account info" page, OpenID accounts will not be 
     32able to edit their user name; this comes from the OpenID provider. 
     33 
     34== Manager interface == 
    635 
    736 * On the "identify your account" page of the Attach Project wizard,
