OpenID & Verisign VIP

A while back I purchased a PayPal Security Key, which is a physical key fob that generates a number to use in addition to my normal login. The key fob itself was $5, and I like the idea of having “two-factor” authentication where my money is. A really cool thing that I just found out about today is that the key fob from PayPal is actually a Verisign VIP (Verisign Identity Protection) token.. and can be used everywhere that their own $30 token can be used, including for OpenID authentication at the Verisign Personal Identity Portal! Very cool. Not only that, but the web to lead model that they use provides easy acces for everything i want to do in their area.
