Hi David,
Sorry I should have included a link.


The original OpenID was incredibly complex, which is why commercial
alternatives like twitter login and facebook connect gained ground using
oauth and oauth2 respectively.

The problem with using a token as a user identifier is that it then needs
to be permanent. OpenID Connect solves it by adding a separate id_token to
a OAuth2 authentication request, which can be used as a user identifier.

The clever thing is that it can be combined with any other OAuth 2
authorization request such as an OpenTransact authorization request. This
means you can authorize a payment as well as provide identity information
to a merchant in a simple step.
