Huh? I'm sure you use HTTP for transferring requests and responses,
too, and that protocol is at least as as open. What does the openness
of the protocol have to do with who can access it?

Please, if you're going to be coding new systems, use established,
standard, open protocols with actively maintained implementations. For
single sign-on. OpenID is the one to choose.
