The Identity Management Design Wiki
Use this site to collect from, or add to, the knowledge about real-world implementations of identification of entities involved in computer networking.
This wiki is organized as a collection of Design Patterns, some of which are just a glossary of terms used, and others which go deeper into the design process. It also contains a few long-form articles on broader subjects.
