Our Tech Talk series continued this month with a discussion of Boyle Software’s OpenID Authenticator for Apache Tomcat. The Talk was led by the creator of the Authenticator, Boyle Software’s VP of Back-End Development, Lev Himmelfarb. Lev covered the technical underpinnings of OpenID in detail as well as giving an overview of its history as a standard.
Boyle Software uses the OpenID Authenticator to provide our employees seamless, transparent access to their work email accounts, their timesheets, the company’s Wiki, and other necessities, all within a single browser session.
