Yahoo announced it was "giving away" its browser-based authentication code to the world wide developer community citing that it could not build or buy enough innovation and is enlisting the developer community to build new apps around Yahoo's content.

Here's Yahoo's announcement :

You build great web applications. We have millions of users who store their data on Yahoo!. Browser-Based Authentication (BBAuth) makes it possible for your applications to use that data (with their permission).

BBAuth also offers a Single Sign-On (SSO) facility so that existing Yahoo! users can use your services without having to complete yet another registration process.
