A visual tour of the .NET Access Control service, part 2: fun with scopes and issuers

Here we are again. I am just back from Belgium’s TechDays, and I can still savor the nice feeling you get from talking in front of a very interested audience 🙂 I’m really glad to see that both the cloud and claims based identity are enjoying the attention they deserve! I have been asked to…

Windows CardSpace helps Eduserve to fuel DreamSpark authentication

I am sure you are all more than familiar with DreamSpark, the amazing (YES, amazing. Bravo Milo!) offer through which Microsoft gives access to developer & designer tools at no charge.
