Medtronic, PayPal, and Microsoft worked together to produce a multi-protocol federated "identity mash-up" demo using multiple protocols (OpenID and WS-Federation). The demo shows how Medtronic customers could use PayPal identities when signing up for and participating in a medical device trial.

Southworks, that built much of the demo, has released the source code and documentation for a proof-of-concept OpenID/WS-Federation Security Token Service (STS) based on the one used in the demo, should you be interested in prototyping something similar.
