CardSpace Finally Has A Logo!

Yes! Finally! For anyone that has worked with CardSpace, there was always a lot of guess work that went into it building out your user interface because here was never a static logo that we could use to inform a user that a site was InfoCard ready. Finally, a new logo has been released, that we can all use. In a variety of formats. If you want all the CardSpace images, they are available here. The purple is, ehhhh, interesting. I would have perhaps went a SharePoint bluish color, but I guess I have no say. I wonder if you can change the hues of it to your own color and not have MS get mad....

Sneak Peak – SharePoint CardSpace Provider

I wanted to give everyone a quick sneek peak at what the CardSpace provider I am working on is shaping up to be. Its not real fancy right now, and is currently in testing with two companies I know that were interested in getting their SharePoint implementation up with CardSpace. Here is a large screenshot of it: (select for larger image) What you will notice that is not the same as the orthodox login.aspx that is used by default within SharePoint FBA enabled sites is this little piece: This is the CardSpace login WebPart. It has a lot of ties into the Form Based Authentication settings,...

Your First InfoCard WebPart (CardSpace WebPart Example)

As discussed in a previous post, I was talking about a current client I am working with where we developed a bunch of ASP.NET 2.0 WebParts that are related to InfoCard management and provisioning used within SharePoint 2007. Some of this WebParts were strictly for interrogating the InfoCard properties in order to understand what was really going on beyond the scenes with SharePoint and InfoCard interaction. There are a bunch of ways to display the things that InfoCard is doing (such as claims), but there were some very specific things that I was interested in that I wanted to display in...

CardSpace / Identity 2.0

Man, I hate these cliché technology terms. Anyways, at one of my clients we are using CardSpace with SharePoint, and it is working great, users really love it as the whole experience for both internal and external use is the same. Best of all we were able to eliminate the dual authentication prompts with office clients dropping the login token when invoked from SharePoint with the CardSpace OM. We use a common WebPart library that exposes the required common CardSpace API calls to build out something that we call “IdentityPoint” which manages all the InfoCards within the...

CardSpace and SharePoint Threshhold

I was talking to a co-worker today after a code review, whom is going through my code currently for the CardSpace authentication provider pieces. We talked a little bit about some things that he had found, and about our general CardSpace experience. Mostly, we talked about the inefficiencies / bottlenecks of some of the stuff I had written (object disposal drives me nuts!). What I was interested in was why there was so much industry push-back on CardSpace. He made a very good point. The threshold of entry for organizations just starting with SharePoint implementations is exceptionally high....

CardSpace Froze My Desktop!

Actually, it didn’t really freeze it. The reason for what I call “insane modal mode” :-) is on purpose for security reasons. When you start the CardSpace UI (icardagt.exe), it is actually invoking a private desktop, so is completely separate from your actual desktop. It is pretty heavy on not letting you do anything. Watch your clock on the background, it won’t even move. What you are looking at in the background is actually just a bitmap capture of what your background used to look like when the CardSpace UI was invoked. The security concept that we want to eliminate...
