U-Prove CTP: A Developer’s Perspective

Sign in to queue


In this second episode of the IdElement special on the U-Prove CTP, you get to know Christian Paquin and Greg Thompson, the team behind the U-Prove implementation since the Credentica times. Christian positions U-Prove in the context of the identity metasystem, and Greg goes into the details of the enhancements applied to CardSpace, Windows Identity Foundation, and ADFSv2 in order to integrate the U-Prove features. Tune in!

The Discussion

    Is the client configured to also be a relying party? For example, perhaps I would like to receive a certificate containing an email addr or sip uri and cryptographic key, so as to initiate secured email or voip communication. Or, perhaps I would like to receive money from a friend, which I might then use to pass on to some other relying party (without going through a bank).

    The video refers to our first U-Prove CTP, where the CardSpace client was used to retrieve and present U-Prove tokens (it was not acting as a relying party). Note that we recently released an update to the CTP, using the same architecture model but with a different client implementation. Details can be found on http://www.microsoft.com/u-prove. I also encourage you to take a look at the white paper for more information.
