Thanks Ryan.

I don't think Keyring is exactly what I'm looking for however.

Perhaps I'm misunderstanding, but it looks like Keyring associates OAuth
credentials from other sites with WordPress user accounts, and makes those
available for authenticated API calls to those sites, but doesn't perform
single sign-on as such.

What I'm looking to do is replace the standard WordPress login with login
via an external site, and it doesn't look as if Keyring does that.

Best regards,

Robert Lowe
