Even More Questions on Identity
Yesterday, Novell and IBM threw their weight behind a framework that uses completely different approach: project Higgins. First, it's an API that aggregates trust providers from many different vendors. For example IBM is planning to use it in its commercial Tivoli identity management software. Programmers can write smart secure applications using these calls and not be locked in to any particular technology or provider.
I wonder what Kim Cameron thinks? Could someone let me know if Sun will join Infocard, Higgins, create their own or just sit on the sidelines...
