New: “Participating In Markets For Portable Identities In The Cloud: What’s The Coin Of Your Realm?”

I’ve got a new post up on the Forrester blogs, discussing a “markets for portable identity” angle on my latest research report (which is full of Venn goodness!), and how SAML, OAuth, and OpenID are “hard currencies.”

You could take this theme pretty far. Does SAML-OAuth bridging have any elements of arbitrage about it? Is assurance leakage in protocol translation like the lousy currency exchange rates at those little van kiosks in airports? Maybe that’s far enough…

    Hi Eve,

    as you know, I’m very interested in the risks of these portable identities and where the responsibility lies: the customer using the portable identities or the vendor selling it?

    Cheers, Cordny

    PS: Is Forrester also into NFCpayments-reaearch ? :-)
