    Stuart,

    I liked the concept and this is what I am looking for one of my biggest government client (*Undisclosed, I can talk more in private e-mail). How this will address application issues? for example MOSS 2007 Search requires NTLM it won't work at all and/or correctly with Kerberos. When Microsoft will start using Geneva in there own products? and have same set of credentials regardless of product(s).

    We have a mix bag of FBA, Windows Authentication, Custom providers credentials for legacy, ASP, ColdFusion, Java, Oracle and .NET web applications, I am very much interested in this product and like to understand how Geneva can help and will be used as a SSO (single sign-on) Gateway across all the applications listed above.

    Current requirement is to have a single gateway for all the applications, once authenticated in any application user will automatically access all the applications without login challenge. Security trimming will be done at web application level.

    All this question may be addressed, I will start reading blogs or material available online.

    Yes Gupta, absolutely right single gateway... that is a cool point of Geneva

    any advise from Mr. Stuart that this geneva framework is "safe" to adopt in the production system.. ? i'm afraid that during the Beta period Microsoft.Identity namespace will change and we have to recode as well... Smiley

    Thanks
