The Apples and Oranges of Shibboleth and OpenID

Andy Powell, eFoundations, Dec 24, 2008
Commentary by Stephen Downes

The JISC-funded review of OpenID is good enough so far as it goes, and authored by people who actually built an OpenID gateway, which lends it some credibility. I don't think there's a lot in the report that would be new to proponents of OpenID, but it may be new to the report's readers. Andy Powell criticizes the report, saying 'it inevitably ends up comparing OpenID against the Shibboleth / UK Federation which is not comparing like with like - one is a bare technology, the other a technology delivered in the context of a set of national policies." Which is fair enough, I suppose.
