[OpenID] opensso wiki. good resource for websso engineering.

I've been finding it useful to research the SUN engineering communities "opensso" initiative, particularly when it comes to thinking about "what is missing in openid" for generalized, SSL-style "social" adoption:  http://wikis.sun.com/display/OpenSSOd11n/Sun+OpenSSO+Documentation.

Now, it would be nice if SUN could  openid-enable that wiki, to leverage their own openid OP perhaps. Or, if openid is too difficult  a marketing-step within SUN, perhaps just websso-enable the wiki (with SAML2 say, using the "dynamic metadata"  model that makes SAML act very much like openid 2 discovery with signed XRDSs).

Websso has been a longtime coming - and most vendors have reduced their pitch to address only the basic functions (posted assertion making and then reliance). Now that many of us of doing the basic functions... and hitting the limits of the simple profiles, I suspect it time to rollout out all the advanced stuff again!
