IdP marketing 101In a posting today, Mark Wahl seems to believe that a CardSpace managed card identity provider will generate claims on the users behalf without any validation that the data is correct. I've no idea where he thinks this might arise, except perhaps thru stray gamma rays flipping bits in the database. He says:
But any IdP which doesn't allow me to modify changeable personal data (address, spouse's name, numbr of children, employer or so much more) isn't going to be an IdP of mine for very long. And any one which provides no mechanism for correcting erroneous information won't stay in business very long. The user has the choice of which IdPs to use, the market competition will be the same as in any service industry - IdPs will compete for your business (as do banks, insurance companies, etc.) based on the perceived value of the service. Those that don't deliver a good user experience will quickly fall by the way side.
