In this episode Donovan sits down with the Intand President, Bryan Otis, and CIO, Scott Otis, along with Vijay Rajagopalan, Principal Architect, Microsoft Interoperability Strategy, to drill into how Intand enabled their PHP application to support information cards. This prototype project, for the Lake Washington School District, was based upon the use of Microsoft code name Geneva Server, Windows CardSpace Geneva and Intand’s PHP application using the Zend Framework’s information card support  for interoperability. This project was also featured in a video during the Scott Charney, Corporate Vice President, Microsoft, keynote address at the April, 2009 RSA Conference.

      I want to ditto Bryan's comments - thanks!  This has been a great project to work on and we applaud Microsoft for building their "Geneva" server and framework on open standards.  With the investment Microsoft has made in this space we believe the goal of wide-spread, easy-to-use single sign on / federated identity and claims-based access will finally be reached.  We are excited!
