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:

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, mainly for redirection. All of the settings for it are managed from the WebPart properties, so it is fairly easy to manipulate with claims and STS parameters. Along with that, it is desployed as a SharePoint Feature file through a .wsp so is easily manageable.
Thanks go to my friends at InfoDyne and MaxBits who are currently testing this for me! Your time is much appreciated!
