Tim Bray: Whatâs more interesting is that weâre rolling out an OpenID provider at (last time I looked)Now, if only Roller and blogs.sun.com supported OpenID we'd reallly be cookin'
openid.sun.com, but with a twist: You canât get an OpenID there unless youâre a Sun employee, and if someone offers an OpenID whose URI is there, and it authenticates, you can be really sure that theyâre a Sun employee. It doesnât tell you their name or address or anything else; thatâs up to the individual to provide (or not). The authentication relies on our Access Manager product, and itâs pretty strong; employees here have to use those crypto-magic SecureCard token generators for serious authentication, passwords arenât good enough.
