Open ID

People use Internet to do banking, shopping, emailing, downloading movies etc. Most of these sites require a user account in order to serve more functionality and better to keep track of the customer. OpenID is a protocol, which allow single sign-in for the Internet websites. OpenID works in a way where users authenticate them selves only once with a Identity Provider (also known as IR or OP (OpenID provider) and the IR will authenticate the users to different websites. But to what extent can Open ID provide safe and faster ways of logging into websites?
