    How is "login with Facebook" done?

    I'm making a site for which I'd like users to login on another site with the login and password on my site. How is it done?

    Either at home or at work or down the pub
    Or do you want to create your own version?

    There is an open source PHP package to allow you to do OpenID authentication - which is similar to the facebook one in that it hands off the authentication to another agent. If you poke around that on Google for a bit, you'll find out how that's done. I suspect that facebook will want to charge you money to access their authentication API.
