"InfoCard" simple demo

Sign in to queue


This screencast shows how InfoCards can be created and used at a website that allows users to authenticate using self-issued (aka Personal) InfoCards. 

The demo uses a pre-beta 2 version of InfoCard and an ASP.NET 2.0 web site. To see a demo with InfoCard and PHP take a look at http://www.identityblog.com/?page_id=430.

The Discussion

    So what is an InfoCaaaaaaaaaard anyway.Smiley

    What would be the experience if you had a managed card. How would the user get this onto their desktop?

    well that's one of the things it tries to KEEP you from doing.  so your information is secure.  a hacker can reach your desktop.  one can't reach infocard. (hopefully.)

    If person "A" has logged into their computer at home/office who has an InfoCard already made, and then that person leaves the room/office (without logging off first), what security measures are there to prevent person "B" from accessing a website that is InfoCard capable?  I would assume that some banking sites and others would have personal information stored and easily viewed once logged into that "secure" site... that info would be open to compromise?

    For me, Infocard, now CardSpace, is PKI with different names and also applied to web sites

    CA = Provider
    Public/Private Key = Card


    Am I wrong?

    Would you mind giving us more detailed information about CardSpace compared to PKI and PGP?
