The problem with OpenID…finding timely, relevant examples to shill with?

Stefan Brands of Credentica took the time last week to attack some of the weaknesses in OpenID security. David Recordon of Verisign Six Apart responded in kind. Media critique/political statement notwithstanding, Recordon effectively pointed out that the majority of Stefan’s references were actually working with OpenID, the goal being interoperability and/or supplemental security. David then questioned why Brands/Credentica were not joining the party.

I found Mr. Brands’s arguments a bit messy, and if I was an investor in Credentica I’d be asking the same question.

UPDATE: Kim Cameron chimes in …”The main problem is simply that it misses the whole point about why OpenID is of interest.
