Play Proof Pudding: Identity Metasystem and CardSpace Interop in Action
There’s been a ton of progress with CardSpace identity interop recently. Microsoft has created 4 open source projects enabling devs to handle information cards using Java, Ruby, PHP and C. The Identity Selector Interop Profile is under the Open Spec Promise, Shibboleth has announced support for Information Cards, and Information Cards will be used by many OpenID providers to enable phishing-resistant authentication. CardSpace People Nigel Watling, Mike Jones and Garrett Serack got together with Pat Felsted from Novell in the “Identity Metasystem Lounge” at MIX07 to show the Mac, Linux, Windows, FireFox and IE – amongst others – seamlessly handling digital identities (dodgy network cable permitting!).
