Windows Live ID has added Beta support for Information Cards with Windows CardSpace. It’s a new way to sign in more securely and conveniently into websites. Now you don’t need passwords to sign-in, thus reducing the risk of phishing attacks and keyloggers. You just have to send your Information Card to Live ID to identify you and get signed into Hotmail, Windows Live Spaces or any other site that accepts Windows Live ID. This is what was announced at the Windows Live ID team blog.
Just follow this link to get started.
Sign in with your password.
I have chosen Personal card as Windows Live ID currently supports it. You have to enter whatever details you want to provide and a photograph to associate with it, if you want to.
Now you have associated an Information card to your account. Now close the browser and let us try to use this. So let us check our Windows Live Hotmail which requires a Windows Live ID.
you select the card which you had created earlier and there you are Successfully logged in checking your mail.
There’s a Windows Live ID Web Authentication SDK for Developers also, which allows sites which wants to integrate with the Windows Live services and platform.
