Exploring Single Sign-on

Various authors, System :: Weblog, May 05, 2005
Commentary by Stephen Downes

This item lists several other single sign-on initiatives, such as A-Select, Lasso and CAS. All three require some sort of 'identity service provider' (as Lasso calls it). It also mentions my own mIDm proposal in passing, which does not require a third party. Scott Wilson, meanwhile, has created a Zope version of mIDm. Gerrit Visser of Smart Mobs picks up the item, which is echoed in a couple of places. Alan Cooper, meanwhile, took issue with my argument against authentication (badly treated by my comments system (for which I apologise) he appears to have created a blog specifically to comment on this - a blog I hope he continues, as his point of view is clearly written and well argued).
