Open source ID projects link up with Microsoft

Developers with the Bandit and Eclipse Higgins projects will demonstrate a new open source tool for authenticating users across multiple ID management systems at next week's RSA Conference in San Francisco.

The organizations have teamed up with a larger community of open source developers to create what they describe as a reference application that allows ID cards generated by one system to be used in another system. Specifically, the demonstration will show how the application can make cards generated from a Liberty Alliance-based ID system such as Novell Access Manager compatible with a non-Liberty Alliance system such as Microsoft Windows CardSpace program.
