It seems that as people use SSO solutions like pubcookie more and more for services that span throughout an institution, this infrastructure becomes more and more vulnerable to CSRF attacks.

Have the problems of CSRF & SSO been formally addressed somewhere? Are there any whitepapers? I'm googling but I can't seem to find anything useful...

Not that specific topic (it's more granular than what we normally talk about). Generally speaking (and what I've said hundreds of times) is you are no longer as vulnerable as you are with SSO but you are instead as vulnerable as the weakest link on the chain. And if the weakest link allows you to put up <IMG tags on the site, or can be easily social engineered into doing something stupid (phishing) then the whole system is theoretically vulnerable to the same thing. I do talk about SSO fairly regularly, if you are just trying to find some written material:
