    At TechEd last week, Microsoft Corp. sketched out some of its future
    intentions in the identity management space, including federation
    services that likely will include Web single sign-on.

    Some resellers say the timing couldn't be much better for these sorts of
    features to emerge for Windows. Others, though, contend that Microsoft
    should plug up existing security holes before venturing off into yet
    another new technology realm.

    Ed Sarasinski, a senior solutions architect at Teterboro, N.J.-based
    Computer Design & Integration LLC, said that many of his company's
    customers are either looking at or already working on new single sign-on
    projects, for unified authentication across all applications.

    [...]

    Some customers are using Novell Inc.'s provisioning tools. "Ever since
    Novell bought SUSE, we've seen longtime NetWare users switching over to
    Linux. Novell looked like it was about to die?but now that company has
    been renewed," Sarasinski said.

    [...]

    But one Windows reseller who services SMBs is quite unreceptive to the
    Microsoft initiative.

    "Microsoft's tried single sign-on before. They had something like that
    back in the days of Windows NT, and it never worked right. As a matter
    of fact, a lot of the stuff in NT never worked right, including the
    printing system," said Richard Brumberg, who heads up Business
    Consulting Services, in New York.

    "If Microsoft wants to tighten security, they should concentrate first
    on fixing the holes they already have. Windows keeps getting hit by one
    virus after another," Brumberg maintained.

    Why not reach the masses and start posting at ALL the
    microsoft.public.* groups?
    Or at alt.news? Or news.announce.important?
