Initial Release of Bandit Project’s DigitalMe Identity Selector

Let me be the first to congratulate the Bandit and Higgins project members on the release of the DigitalMe Identity Selector for SuSE Linux! Now, for the first time, Linux users have an installable Identity Selector available to them that enables them to use Information Cards in a way that’s compatible with Windows CardSpace. See Novell’s press release “Bandit Project’s Cross-Platform Card Selector Gives Users Control of their Internet Identities”, the Identity Selector Service page, and the Identity Selector Service Download page for more details.

This announcement lets people who aren’t developers start to use Information Cards on Linux and builds on the interoperability successes demonstrated at Brainshare. And as the downloads page says, “Work is under way to provide packages for other Linux distros, OS X and Windows.” Great stuff!

Congratulations again!
