Claims-based SSO with SAML 2.0

On SAP Community Network the presentation Next Generation SSO for SAP Applications with SAML 2.0 is published containing an overview about authentication, single sign-on (SSO), and identity federation for SAP centric applications. Combined with the recent release of Microsoft's Claims-Based identity platform (Windows Identity Foundation, formerly known as Geneva), and IBM enabling Identity Federation via its WebSphere Application Server (Identity federation using SAML and WebSphere software); 3 of the largest software companies are taking significant steps on this requisite for the interoperability puzzle. Of the remaining other large software companies, Oracle has an handle to the OpenSSO product via the SUN acquisition. But doubt rises about the willingness and commitment of Oracle to OpenSSO - a first sign of this is demonstrated by some broken links to OpenSSO information. From the Google camp I yet miss notion of their plans and products on the Claims-Based Identity subject. I expect that it will either originate from the Open Source community, or donate to it. Who knows, perhaps Google (allthough IBM is a more likely candidate) would be the ideal new founder for OpenSSO...
