It's a little unclear what you are asking for. Are you looking to implement an authentication mechanism for your service? What have your looked at/considered/tried already? – Kevin Bowen Jun 6 '13 at 1:31
i am trying to become a cloud storage provider and i am not sure what the best way to do that and how I can have my clients connect to it – Blane Sheck Jun 6 '13 at 2:08
No. It's a really interesting question. But, any additional details that you could provide would help us answer your question and, hopefully, point you in the right direction. Please add any additional info in your original question. It sounds like you have picked a cloud platform and are looking for authentication mechanisms. Is that correct? What have you chosen? – Kevin Bowen Jun 6 '13 at 2:13
