How Infocard prevents phishing, in practice

I recently had a hot debate about how Infocard prevents phising; now everytime I see the “What’s in your wallet?” commercial the arguments come back in mind, so I guess the only way to break free from them is going again through it. So here it’s how it goes [:)] Disclaimer: for extensive coverage of Infocard and the Identity Metasystem, check out…

The meaning of the symbol

I’d like to thank everybody who gave feedback about the symbol I’ve proposed in the last post. The results made pretty much clear that without a context the meaning of the symbol is pretty hard to parse. However it was hoping too much to get an immediate comprehension of it, as it tries to espress…

The church of t4T

Hello there.I’d like to surface a debate I had recently about the application of the four tenets, or t4T for brevity.

InfoCard and CT imagery

When I was dealing with the first years of my CS degree, I complained all the time that most of the exams were pure math: everybody kept saying that it would have been a good basis for the advanced topics, yadda yadda but I was’t so inclined to see that strategic value after days and days of…

maybe a bit stale, but still noteworthy: WS-Management flies toward standardization

Among the tons of things which happened during my blogout (from “blackout”: neologism indicating a timeframe without posts [:)]), there was the push for WS-Management standardization: see http://www.microsoft.com/presspass/press/2005/sep05/09-15WSManagementSpecsPR.mspx.
