Joseph Smarr held an interesting session on IIW last week on "What an RP wants", outlining the current needs of RPs (Resource Provider in OpenID lingo = provider of a service the user access). He claimed that Plaxo, Facebook and other SNS (RPs) are not primarily interested in being IdPs (Identity Providers), owning the user profiles. If someone else can realiably provide that service they would be happy to use it instead. The problem is that they need to be able determine how to trust an IdP to operate their service reliably and also make sure they don't loose the ability to communicate directly with the customer. The problems is made worse by the fact that we want to allow users to choose any IdP, not just a few big ones.
