Eric Norlin at PingID commented on my response to PingID’s recent press release on federation-enabling Windows logon. I wasn’t really throwing down the gauntlet, more pointing out the – shall we say – exaggeration that (quoting from the press release)
This makes it possible, for the first time, to provide seamless single sign-on access to remote resources and applications across autonomous security domains and corporate boundaries – from the Windows desktop logon via SAML.
I am a nice guy, really, Eric. If you’re going to be at Digital ID World next week then do stop by the Sun stand and say “Hi!” – that goes for anyone reading this. I’ll be there every day – if you want to chat and I’m not on the stand when you’re passing, then ask one of the other Sun folks when I’ll be around.
