A funny thing happened a while back… I had a request from Scott Hanselman to decrypt and consume a security token created by Windows CardSpace, but do it on ASP.NET 1.1.

Comments, Suggestions, Features and WHAT THE HECK WAS THAT!?

Hopefully, that got your attention. We’re starting to sketch out designs for the next version of CardSpace.  I’m starting a thread on our forums and makin’ it sticky so we can continue a dialog around new features.

Losing our Anonymity?

I originally wrote this as a comment to Pamela’s blog, but I thought it was interesting enough to stand alone. Quoting from her post: The AOL search data scandal is a welcome wakeup call.

Additonally, The decryption itself has been simplified, and can be done without .NET 3.0 (however,…
