Single Sign-On for the Web Has Failed
Let's be honest, most of us (all of us?) have lists somewhere of out log-ins and passwords. With demands for complex passwords, we have to. And for most sites, all the logical user names are taken. So I end up being DouG8256 -- a real intuitive user name! (DouG8255 was already taken.)
For years I have heard vendors beating the single log-in drum. I haven't heard a peep for a long while, which tells me, especially for online, it has failed.
Microsoft made a valiant effort with Passport, but its Web sites were the only one that used it.
How do you keep track of all your log-ins and passwords? Spill the beans at firstname.lastname@example.org.
