In the comments, there is even some words about Drupal.

Apparently, this is a distributed authentification framework.

From the wikipedia article[1]:
Unlike most single sign-on architectures, OpenID does not specify the authentication mechanism. Therefore, the strength of an OpenID login depends on how much a relying party knows about the authentication policies of the i-broker. Without such knowledge, OpenID is not meant to be used on sensitive accounts (banking, e-commerce transactions, etc.), but if an identity provider/i-broker uses Strong authentication, OpenID can be used for all types of transactions.
