Year’s end blabbering: Omnidirectional Identities

On the Paris-Seattle flight, coming back after 2 weeks spent stuffing myself with all sorts of food with the excuse “after all, you can’t find this in USA” 🙂Before hurling myself back in the vortex of daily work, and celebrate the end of the year with something crazy, I want to take some time writing…

The Authorization Continuum

On a flight from Rome to Warsaw: apparently the droning noise of the plane (or what’s left of it after this) inspires me, and now I finally have the means of pulling out live writer from a pocket and start writing. This time I’d like to explore with you some further consequences of the shift…

Developing a minimal STS with ADFS "2" Identity Framework (Part III: Creating a Relying Party)

All right! Welcome to the last installment of this unusual multipart post: this time we are going to see how the ADFS “2” Identity Framework makes creating an RP a trivial task. Previously, on Vibro.NET: One of the comments to my breakout session at TechEd suggested that the demo I’ve shown was too simple to…

My new Fujitsu U810

[warning: this post does not feature any identity related content, and it’s probably useless] I feel for the UMPCs an unhealthy (walletwise) attraction, since the very moment they came out. In fact, if you dig in the early years of this blog you’ll see I am a gadget freak: I am still proudly going around…

myOpenID supports the creation of passwordless accounts

Back in June I blogged about SignOn.com, an openID provider that allows you to authenticate using personal cards side by side with traditional password support. In fact, while I was…

Office & CardSpace: using CardSpace for securing Excel to Web Services communications

In this post I am going to show you an example of CardSpace and an Office application working together. I know, I still owe you part II of the STS walkthrough; however I delayed this post for months, and I promised I would have done it this long weekend so I can’t really skip it…

Developing a minimal STS with ADFS "2" Identity Framework (Part I: the STS itself)

I promised it, and I’m doing it. In this post I will give a simple walkthrough of developing an STS with the ADFS “2” Identity Framework. If you went to my breakout session at TechEd Europe, you can safely skip this post. I am not going to reveal anything more than I’ve already shown in that…

ADFS "2" TechEd Breakout Session Wrapup

Another flight, another post! While I’m hurdled at impossible speed over the Atlantic toward US, I find myself to reflect about the breakout session I delivered 10 days ago at TechEd in Barcelona. And I better do it fast, since the seat power plug can’t deliver enough Watts for my little Tasmanian devil with a…

Book Lore

Flying from Brussels to Reykjavik (hey, I’ve finally learned to spell it?). Damn economy seat on the boundary with biz class, the curtain keeps falling in front of the X61 screen. I have tons of things to do, I am behind on a lot of fronts and I know that people will nag me with “if…
