Bugzilla:OpenID Auth Plugin
This page is a specification of how OpenID authentication should work in Bugzilla. In OpenID nomenclature, this is about making Bugzilla an OpenID "consumer".
OpenID is a decentralized authentication system which allows web server applications such as Bugzilla (known as "consumers") to authenticate users by URI. Through three different two-way conversations (user to consumer, user to server, consumer to server), the consumer can test a user's ownership of a URI without having to receive a password directly from the user, thus not needing to collect and store passwords.
Jacky Alcine has written a Bugzilla OpenID plugin available on GitHub.
