PayPal joins OpenID Foundation

The OpenID Foundation has announced the addition of PayPal as a member of their Board. In a move that sends very positive signals regarding the security of OpenID they are joining the ranks of Google, IBM, Microsoft, VeriSign and Yahoo!.

Andrew Nash, Sr. Director of Information Risk Management and a longstanding advocate for OpenID, is Paypal's selection as their representative.

You won't be able to login to PayPal with your OpenID any time soon, but it is reassuring to see their expertise in securing authentication systems being brought to bear on the fast growing platform.
