Number 4 in our possible interpretations of the EduID = a login service

Last. But certainly not least in our interpretations. EduID as a login service. i.e. A single key to as man public, and private, services as possible,

For this to be possible, eduID must be designed as a very ambitious IdP - an identity provider. So what is an IdP and why do we need one?, you may ask.

Obviously, password fatigue is at the top of any list for all users, and that’s just considering how to get into hundreds of public services without blowing a fuse.

Just as importantly, then surely it enable access to interactive places like this forum, where citizens and their designers could co-create services. Or maybe places like have your say.
