    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.
