How many on-line accounts do you have?

As the the web moves from a static environment to rich on-line applications and services, most web sites will require users to authenticate themselves (log-on). As this trend continues nearly every site will require a user to log-on. A user could end up having potentially 1000's of accounts on the web.

Most users only remember their log-on details for the sites they use regularly. Often using the same log-on details for each site, which increases the likelihood of their credentials being stolen. If a user has the same log-on details for a forum and their bank, a hacker only needs to get the less secure forum password to be able to get the password for the bank.

The solution isn't to make log-on processes more complicated. The solution is to make it easier and more familiar for users, then use technology to make sure they are secure. OneID is a solution that does this.

What is OneID?

OneID is an authentication service that is easy to use, and offers maximum security. Users are able to choose their own unique login ID, and which credentials they use to log-on (the one that's easiest for them). OneID also offers extra protection by actively detecting possible security breaches and giving the user options when this occurs, including a panic feature which locks the account. Users are also able to block websites from gaining access to their data.

Developers can easily integrate the OneID service with their on-line application free of charge. The OneID service lets the website know who is browsing their site by sharing the unique OneID. It also provides a method for the site to double check that this information is true.
