New Release of Firefox Information Card Add-on

Firefox logoI wanted to call your attention to the new release of the Firefox Information Card add-on that Axel Nennker posted this week. Axel’s changes address a number of issues identified during the Interop at Catalyst in Barcelona. Among other things, with this add-on, Firefox now supports:

  • privacyUrl and privacyVersion, which enable privacy policies to be shown,
  • issuer and issuerPolicy, which enable the use of Relying Party STSs, and
  • sites that don’t use SSL certificates (which use http rather than https).

I believe that this brings Firefox up to feature parity with the Information Card support in IE7 when used with CardSpace, as well as enabling the use of Firefox with additional identity selectors such as the openinfocard selector and others. Thanks for the great work Axel!
