OpenID protocol is deprecated. You should now use OpenID Connect.


LL::NG can delegate authentication to an OpenID server. This requires Perl OpenID consumer module with at least version 1.0.


LL::NG can also act as OpenID server, that allows one to interconnect two LL::NG systems.

LL::NG will then display a form with an OpenID input, where users will type their OpenID login.


OpenID authentication can proposed as an alternate authentication scheme using the authentication choice method.

LL::NG can use a white list or a black list to filter allowed OpenID domains.

If OpenID is used as users database, attributes will be requested to the server with SREG extension.


In Manager, go in General Parameters > Authentication modules and choose OpenID for authentication and/or users.

Then, go in OpenID parameters:

  • Authentication level: authentication level for this module.

  • Secret token: used to check integrity of OpenID response.

  • Authorized domain:

    • List type: choose white list to define allowed domains or black list to define forbidden domains

    • List: domains list (comma separated values)

To configure requested attributes, edit Exported variables and define attributes:

  • Key: internal session key, can be prefixed by ! to make the attribute required

  • Value: SREG attribute name:

    • fullname

    • nickname

    • language

    • postcode

    • timezone

    • country

    • gender

    • email

    • dob

Browser implementations of formAction directive are inconsistent (e.g. Firefox doesn’t block the redirects whereas Chrome does). Administrators may have to modify formAction value with wildcard likes *.

In Manager, go in:

General Parameters > Advanced Parameters > Security > Content Security Policy > Form destination
