ok Ill admit that we never "deployed" openid (as an IDP). I do have a nice codeplex project that is built on the 4windows openid library, that nicely emulates myopenid. But, Ive never had "need" to use it. We will see why below.
As an SP, we can accept openid messages from Google, Yahoo, myopenid and openlink4webid (courtesy of the Microsoft Azure openid->ws-fedp bridge). Today, a nice demo has folks with Google crdentials using them to land on Joomla (that we properly ws-fedp enabled). Joomla plugins (wordpress and all its plugins, and JomSocial) then round out the user-centric experience.
Since we bought into microsoft STS (passive) concept, the path from Google to Joomla actually wanders by other STSs, transparently. these create web-sessions in passing (and control flows, or add/transform claims). For exmaple, our realty authz claims inserted by an intermediated STS are mapped onto Joomla groups - which drives the flow in what is a now a 100% claims-drive website. Since folks have a google (and other sessions), mere hyperlinks from the SP site back to "pages" on the IDP sites (googe social, realty MLS, assocition-CRM) get folks a mashed-up webapp experience - without us acting an an openid token issuer. You already have those sessions!
But, none of this gets me to the windows 8 tablet. The above is the web that was.
What one thing can I do, for modern openid, in a windows 8 tablet world - that showcases openid (connect)?
I probably have about 1 shot at inserting openid (connect) into a first release of a realty website tuned specifically to tablet-interaction dynamics. What can I do?
There must be zero politics (dont sell me governance). There must be no strange .net languages (install Boo runtime on the tablet). There must be no third-party managed nascar array (full of politics and "control" of RP by IDPs issues). And, ideally, it would somehow showcase why openid is relevant to the device-centric "paradigm shift" - why openind is so totally relevant to a tablet-based UI concept (that looks like and behaves nothing like its PC desktop rendition).
