VeriSign has announced that it has been selected by Microsoft as an OpenID provider for users of HealthVault, a free service that enables consumers to store and manage their health information online. HealthVault's acceptance of VeriSign OpenIDs will begin later.

VeriSign combines OpenID single sign-on with strong authentication via VeriSign Identity Protection (VIP) credentials. Acceptance of VeriSign's OpenIDs, secured by the VeriSign Identity Protection Service, gives consumers another choice when signing into Microsoft HealthVault to help safeguard their personal health information.

Microsoft HealthVault members who have activated their VIP credential on their VeriSign OpenID can also utilise the same VIP credential on eBay, PayPal, AOL and a number of other sites that participate in the VeriSign Identity Protection Network.
