Paul Toal over at Identity, Security and Me posted this to encourage you to check out the demo I put up recently. (Just in case any of you are busy, it's only 3 minutes long!)
Kim Cameron has posted a really good video here explaining how user-centric identity and federation can work together. His blog and associated demonstration is shown using Microsoft CardSpace and Ping Federate from Ping Identity.
I have worked with Ping Identity for some time and was happy with the product and how it, and federation works generally. However, like Paul Squires here, I was struggling to see how it fitted within a user-centric architecture. Whilst I saw the two as complimentary, I didnâ€™t see the link.
This video has clarified this for me and shown that there is a clear interaction between the two.
As usual Kim, thanks for a great demo! If you havenâ€™t seem the demo yet, you HAVE to view it.
Then, following Paul Toal's link to Paul Squires at Here, Now, I came across his additional comment:
This [demo…] is well worth seeing for anyone with an interest in where digital identity is going. The demo itself shows cardspace (if thereâ€™s anyone who hasnâ€™t seen it yet!) along with interoperability between a number of applications. The guys at Ping have done a great job with this and Iâ€™d hope this brings together these various strands of identity management (itâ€™s certainly helped me, not least from an architectural point of view). Things are starting to look very exciting!
Update: Never one to miss out on a bit of vanity, the second open tab in the browser during the demo looks very familiar!
Gee, I'm on a roll. Just like my horoscope said, I seem to be communicating well with people named Paul.
As for Paul two's “update”, looking closely I also can see that I had been reading one of his posts the day I captured the demo. Just think. Some people are worried there will be no fingerprints in the digital world. It ain't true.
One thought on “Demo gets good reviews”
