Internet-Scale Identity Systems: An Overview and Comparison
sponsored by Ping Identity Corporation

An Internet-scale identity system is an architecture that defines standardized mechanisms enabling the identity attributes of its users to be shared between applications and Web sites. This enables a streamlined and optimized online experience for users, greater protection from identity theft and opportunities for customization and personalization that do not require the user to manually configure account information. There are a number of different technologies and standards initiatives designed to deliver an Internet-scale identity system including SAML, Windows CardSpace, OpenID and ID-WSF.

Read this white paper to get an overview of the key initiatives and explore the similarities, differences, and synergies between them.
