How to login with Open Id

Open Id allows you to use an already existing account (like a Google or Yahoo email login) to log into WebProtege. This allows you to use a username and password normally used for webmail (or even looking at pictures, in the case of Flickr) to log into WebProtege.

No private information about your external account (passwords or email addresses) is held or even accessed by WebProtege. The validation of your account is all done by the external provider, just as it is when normally accessing their site. WebProtege currently supports logins from providers like Google, Yahoo, AOL, Flickr and MySpace.

There are two parts to the process; the initial login, which will associate your external account with your WebProtege account, and subsequent logins, which simply use your external account.
