June 2007 - Posts

I have posted my slides on my site for last week's talk on Introduction to Windows CardSpaces at the Southern CT .NET Users Group meeting on June 12.

It was a good meeting, but there were a lot of questions about how well will this technology be adopted. Unfortunately, at the moment, it is still a sparse number of sites that are using the technology (see the sites and for a couple of examples that are using CardSpace). One hinderence may be lack of tools and some documentation for uses with ASP.NET and other environments.

Check out Dominick Baier's latest posts on updated ASP.NET controls for CardSpace and code to get CardSpace tokens programmatically. Great stuff!


I will be speaking at the Southern Connecticut .NET User Group on June 12 from 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm. You can get directions, etc. from their web site here. Here is the abstract:

Introduction to Windows CardSpace

Windows CardSpace enables users to provide their digital identities in a familiar, secure and easy way. It allows the user to use a variety of virtual cards to identify themselves, each retrieving data from an identity provider. This talk will cover an introduction to identity management and related issues, explore the architecture of CardSpace, and will demonstrate how to enable your Web site to receive identity cards.
