Card Issuance CTP for AD FS 2.0

Information Card IconToday Microsoft released a Community Technology Preview (CTP) of software for issuing Information Cards that works with the recently released Active Directory Federation Services (AD FS) 2.0 server software. This means that as well as supporting identities using WS-Federation and SAML 2.0, people can try out scenarios where their identities are based on Active Directory, AD FS 2.0 provides the claims for them using WS-Trust, and cards using the AD FS 2.0 WS-Trust endpoints are issued using the CTP.

As well as working with the current CardSpace 2.0 beta, these cards work with CardSpace 1, which shipped with Windows 7 and Windows Vista and is available for download on Windows XP. They should also work with other identity selectors, both on Windows and on other platforms.

You can ask questions about this at ici-ctp@microsoft.com or by participating in the CardSpace forum.
