I'm involved in a project that requires identity management mechanisms for Grid computing. In this project, we will be using SAML and Access Manager and integrating it with Grid technology like Globus and MyProxy. Around a year ago, when researching on identity management standards, I came across OpenID. A lightweight solution and much more simpler than SAML, it looks like OpenID will become more pervasive in the future. Here's a video by Simon Willison showing how OpenID works.
