The actual Versign web page for PIP appears to be down: https://pip.verisignlabs.com/. Does anyone know if this service is going away from Verisign? Or is the Verisign site down?

I too use Verisign PIP. I didn't receive any notice they were discontinuing the service, so I assume this is a temporary outage.
From the informational PDF about PIP:
Apparently they're aware of the issue. The site now says:
There may have been an outage but it appears to be up now:
This was posted on @VeriSign on Tweeter several hours ago (~10:30 EDT?)
Unfortunately, I haven't been able to find any other info about how much longer or the specific reason for the outage. I choose Verisign over MyOpenId - I was thinking it would be more reliable. Now I'm very concerned now about the length and the lack of communication about this Verisign outage.
If you're not already using it, consider using OpenID delegation to hopefully ease changing providers, if necessary (knock on wood).
