Identity, OpenID, SAML, Shibboleth, WS-Fed | Ashish Jain | March 17, 2008 6:44 pm
I’d say that the ‘theory’ of OpenID is ‘share with everyone’ – the reality is diverging.
Why differentiate between Shi band SAML? Both get typically deployed within a CoT right?
I meant it from the providers and not from the individual users perspective. Hence I was implying metadata and not necessarily user attributes. And “trust” would have been a better choice of word (but I was having a too much trust day ).
Anyway, to your other point, SAML deployments are normally 1-1. Based on what I gather about Shib/Incommon, there is a common place/file that hosts the metadata for all participants. The various entities goes through a validation process to be listed in the common file…and hence ‘Shared with a selected few’.
