We have published an article on OpenID in this month’s BigAdmin newsletter. The article¬†describes the OpenID deployment we have done here at Sun.

One of the feature we were first to demonstrate with OpenID was to increase the trust a Relying Party can have in the principal’s identity by asserting the fact that this principal is also a Sun employee (in addition to the fact that he owns the OpenID URL). This basically supports the approach of whitelisting “acceptable” OpenID OPs (identity providers) from the standpoint of a Relying Party.

Although its usage is far from satisfying (did you say lack of OpenID Relying Parties?), it has been a great way to leverage  OpenSSO and demonstrate its extension mechanism.
