plonesocial.auth.rpx
====================

`plonesocial.auth.rpx` is an addon product for Plone which allows users
to authenticate via the `JanRain's RPX service <http://rpxnow.com>`_. RPX is
sort of a proxy to let a user authenticate with a lot of identity services such
as OpenID, Twitter, Facebook and many others.

Different from the OpenID plugin for Plone the RPX plugin does not just create a virtual user but instead it will map the verfied identifier from RPX (e.g. your OpenID) to an existing or to be created user account. A user is also able to map various identifiers to the same Plone account thus being able to login with his Twitter, Google or Facebook account to the same Plone account. 

`plonesocial.auth.rpx` also allows the user to manage those mappings.
