Identity Landscape - IdCommons The Identity Landscape is a community project to create a shared living "map" of the Internet identity space -- the projects, technologies, and standards that are coming together to create an interoperable identity layer for the Internet. Note: this page is currently a placeholder for the outcome of presentations and discussions at the Internet Identity Workshop to be held in Mountain View December 4-6. In the meantime, feel free to add any content you feel would be appropriate to building an identity landscape. A lot of the material in the next three sections was taken, with permission, from the blog article of Johannes Ernst at http://netmesh.info/jernst/Digital_Identity/who-is-what-in-identity.html.
