I would like to use Google Sites to create a membership web site, where somebody could come to the public landing page and then sign in with Google or Facebook (e.g. using OpenID) and then get access to protected pages.

Are there any open-source applications or tutorials or libraries which can help make this possible? If not, can anybody explain how to do this?

The OpenID Foundation has lots of information.

Many common CMS platforms, like WordPress and Magento, have their own plugins already built.

If you just want to use Google, you visit their Federated Login for Google Account Users page. For just Facebook, visit Facebook Login for Developers.


OpenID Wiki has a page of Libraries many of which have decent documentation, that all help with implementing OpenID Identity Server on your own site.
