I'd like to get your thoughts on the matter, specifically:
- How do you do define user-centric identity?
- Is user-centric identity primarily a B2C requirement, or does it have applicability in the B2B world and inside the enterprise?
- What standards are being developed in this space, and/or how are older standards (e.g., Liberty ID-WSF, if you can call that "old") being applied to these requirements?
- How can user-centric identity and federated identity management coexist and complement each other?
- How soon can we expect to see user-centric identity architectures baked into the leading IdM vendors' software suites?
- How soon before we see user-centric identity environments enjoy the mainstream enterprise acceptance, adoption, and interoperability now found with SAML?
- Does Microsoft have an early-mover advantage with CardSpace in Vista, or is it far too early to pronounce "winners" in this fast-evolving space?
- What significant/serious interoperability, deployment, trust, security, usability, and other challenges do implementers face when implementing user-centric identity?
