You seem to be confusing Hailstorm with Passport. They're not the same
thing. As such, how can one take your analysis when you don't even
understand this difference?

Hailstorm was simply a collection of "for pay" Web services, which have
nothing to do with single sign on.


I haven't seen MS offering any alternative to Passport, and they're still
using it everywhere.

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.
