Open Identity Exchange project

Interesting article about a potential project involving google, paypal, verizon and others.

"Open Identity Exchange (OIX) is a newly founded non-profit organization, launched today at the RSA Conference 2010 by Google, PayPal, Equifax, VeriSign, Verizon, CA and Booz Allen Hamilton. The aim of this new organization is exchange of online identity credentials across public and private sectors; in other words, it can certify online identity providers to U.S. federal standards."

Hmm... Google, Paypal, and Verizon?

This idea of storing user name and password in a centralized place/database may be good idea. But it may increase the risk also, because compromising single password may affect all related websites.
