I investigated the possibilities for creating a single-sign-on service
two custom rails applications and a beast forum. The two apps use the
restful_authentication plugin, slightly modified. I read about different
approaches and found OpenID pretty nice. So I'd like to know whether
are others who have used OpenID for their app suite.
Basically I would like to setup the openid server, then adapt my apps to
this server for register, login, change password and so on.
Is that the way to go or are their more appropriate SSO solutions for

Thanks in advance,

This is what Highrise and Beast currently use:

Also, you don't have to setup your own OpenID server, there are plenty
of them out there.

Thank you  Rick for pointing me to the openid plugin, I didn't recognize
I thought about using a public OpenID server, but it doesn't fit into
solution I would like to have. So probably I'll use a own OpenID server
be kind of independent and more flexible.
