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.“
