Who the h*ll are you?
Microsoft is pushing single sign on as service as opposed to a
Passport service (http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&lr=&q=single+sign+on+site:microsoft.com).
Earlier this year Microsoft had a WS-I interoperability pavillon. None
of the vendors or Microsoft were showing Passport.
That's local single-sign on, for enterprise. Not single-sign on for
e-commerce. That's a service that runs locally and authenticates against
your own credential databases (AD, LDAP, etc..) rather than a single
sign-on that allows you to go to different sites and login once.
One can only hope that a universal solution comes to play, rahther than each
IT major coming with its own identity management solution.
WS-I and or other single-sign on solutions are not solution solution
specific. They can be used for both enterprise and e-commerce.
Separate names with a comma.
