IT wizards have been praising Web services for some time now, but the concept continues to elude much of the rest of the world, masking the massive promise this technology holds for e-business. In plain English, Web services allow a company to link its applications with those of its partners, customers and suppliers via the Internet, in much the same way that Web pages are linked together. Therefore, businesses can view and use partners' data as if it were their own. Pretty impressive, right?

I am amazed to see how little the subject of "digital identity" is discussed within the "Web Service" subject. Make no mistake, there will not be a broad uptake of "Web Services" without better security/authentication. The PC OEM's are about to deploy TCPA compliant PC's that are a step in the right direction. But without a managed "Trust Infrastructure" how are we going to do life cycle managed of all the TCPA boxes out there?
Questions, questions...
