if it were a problem, they'd something about it by now?

An open source project originally designed to provide the University of Michigan with a secure single sign-on web authentication system. cosign is part of the National Science Foundation Middleware Initiative (NMI) EDIT software release

JOSSO is an Open Source Internet SSO solution for rapid and standards-based (SAML) Internet-scale Single Sign-On implementations, allowing secure Internet access to the Web-based applications or services of customers, suppliers, and business partners.

OpenIAM is the most comprehensive Identity and Access Management solution based on a professional open source model.

SEU is not just a distributed identity management system.
The purpose of SEU is:
  1. Having a single, centralized repository of identities that have access to our system, whether individuals, organizations or automated devices.
  2. Manage authorizations each entity has different information systems organization.
  3. Monitor the use made of the identities, tracking the active sessions, and recording login and logout events.
  4. Maintain, if desired, a single user and password on all systems, avoiding the need for requiring users to remember multiple credentials.
  5. Alternatively, you can maintain different users and passwords on different managed systems and allow the desktop module to identifies the user's behalf.
  6. Perform real single sign on, either enterprise (client based) or web single sign-on.

separately, this stuff is damn amusing...
