CardSpace AFDS 2.0, Identity Lab and WS-SX
A few good things happened to CardSpace this week ( other then the release of .NET 3.5 ), and I order then according to importance
- Vibro.NET talked about ADFS "2" at TechEd Europe ( which was in Barcelona )
- The Microsoft CardSpace gang opened a new http://www.federatedidentity.net/ which you can read about here: Identity Lab Goes Live
- The Microsoft CardSpace gang announced about CardSpace support for Oasis WS-SX standards
For me the most importent one is the first, because ADFS 2.0 ( ADFS = Active Directory Federated Server ) would support CardSpace as part of it's infrastructure. The first time we've heard about ADFS 2.0 was at the MIX07 Convention.
BTW , Vibro just released a new article about Developing a minimal STS with ADFS "2" Identity Framework (Part I: the STS itself) which could enlighten you about the differences that VS2008 and ADFS 2.0 bring =)
