Video: What is OpenID Connect? (Google Hangout)

New standard aims to make authentication for websites and apps easier and safer

The OpenID Connect standard was recently ratified by members of the OpenID community, which lets develpers create more secure identity processes that can be used across websites, applications or any computing or mobile device.

In this Google Hangout, I chat with Patrick Harding from Ping Identity to get a background on the protocol and how it will help both end users and developers with the issues of authentication, security and password management

If you want even more details on the new standard, head to the OpenID Foundation site.
