Gartner: Drop Microsoft Passport
Gartner: Drop Microsoft Passport "In what can only be called yet another bid for attention, market research group Gartner is advising businesses using Microsoft's Passport authentication service to stop implementing the technology. This is the second such advisory from the company is recent months; Gartner last year advised companies to stop using Internet Information Services (IIS), Microsoft's Web server. As with the IIS incident, the catalyst for this advice is a security vulnerability, and now, as then, Gartner is out of line."
