I'm doing some experiements with adding OpenID to something I'm working on, and I'd like to test out a few providers.

Is there a server out there that will go through the OpenID login process (same way that the StackOverflow group does) and tell me all the information the provider shows.

I imagine it would work like...

  • I go to and type in
  • bounces me to google. I log in.
  • Google asks me to confirm if I allow access to everything.
  • Google bounces me back to
  • tells me my OpenID, email address, anything else it's got.

Does such a thing please already exist?

You can always setup your own: I created one using Community-ID for PHP (pretty straightforward), here's a list of servers/libraries:

Isn't that the opposite of what the OP wants? – Arjan Apr 28 '10 at 19:17
The OP didn't specifically say he didn't want to setup an identity server, no. If he runs his own test identity server, it'll be trivial to see what data is exchanged during authentication, etc. – gravyface Apr 28 '10 at 19:21
