During a discussion of terminology at this week's Liberty Alliance Technology Expert Group meeting, we noted the use of 'OP' (OpenID Provider) by the OpenID community to refer to their flavour of an Identity Provider.

A clear precedent for:
  • 'LP' == 'Liberty Provider (who could hate somebody that increased the amount of liberty in the world?)

  • 'FP' == 'WS-Federation Provider

  • '*P' == 'WS-* Provider

Note: Yes thanks I am aware that LPs are antique technology. But consider the rich sound they give.
