Great coverage of the different standards, frameworks available, and the uses cases for each. Incredibly helpful in disambiguating what can be a confusing alphabet soup of authentication and identity-related acronyms!

I left this presentation definitely wanting to look into these standards more. There seemed to definitely be some bias towards some standards over others, which is great, I want opinions.

I would prefer to spend less time on the others (OpenID) since you seemed to lean towards OpenID Connect. And with that time saved from the ones you didn't prefer, maybe show examples of implementation.
