TrustAuth is an excellent way to keep your blog secure. TrustAuth uses the same technology as SSL to authenticate users to a website instead of using passwords. This plugin allows you to use TrustAuth to login to your blog.
Note: The TrustAuth browser plugin is required to use TrustAuth. You can find a link to that here on the project homepage. Your browser may not be supported yet.
