While these technologies and services work very well when used as intended, the idea of extending those services beyond their original design scope to address different types of service and applications has many issuesseveral drawbacks, including poor support and unexpected service behaviours

Moonshot instead takes these technologies, adopts the best bits from each technology, and integrates them in a new way such that the benefits of federated authentication can be realised by services and applications that, until now, were out of the reach of the existing technologies.

As such, Moonshot is expected to sit alongside the other existing technologies, giving those who wish to enjoy another tool to enjoy the advantages that federated authentication can give to their services and to their communities.
