    Zermatt is a set of .NET Framework classes; it is a framework for implementing claims-based identity in your applications. By using it, you’ll more easily reap the benefits of claims-based systems described in this paper. Zermatt can be used in any web application or web service that uses the .NET Framework version 3.5.

    Identity Challenges
    Most developers are not security experts and many feel uncomfortable being given the job of authenticating, authorizing, and personalizing experiences for users. It’s not a subject that has been traditionally taught in computer science curriculum, and there’s a long history of these features being ignored until late in the software development lifecycle.

    Zermatt? Really? What kind of name is that?

    How is this related to InfoCard/CardSpace? Is it built on top of CardSpace, or is it a new TOTALLY UNRELATED technology that does the same thing?

    It's CardSpace, errr, Information Card.

    It's token processing code, and asp.net control and some bits for writing an STS.

    All the Information Card/Identity stuff are named after swiss cities right now.
